HC Deb 20 April 1860 vol 157 c2071

said, he rose to move for leave to bring in a Bill to amend the law relating to the postage, or, it would be more correct to say, to the conveyance of newspapers. The purpose of the Bill was to give effect to the objects which he had stated in the financial statement at an early period of the Session. He would have the Bill printed, and would take care that a convenient time elapsed before the second reading. He would also endeavour to make the House acquainted with any subsidiary regulations that might be necessary, to make due provision for the transmission of newspapers under all circumstances. He would therefore, merely place the Motion in the hands of the Speaker.

Leave given.

Bill to amend the Laws relating to the Conveyance and Postage of Newspapers, ordered to be brought in by Mr. CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, and Mr. LAING.

Bill presented and read 1°.
