HC Deb 30 April 1860 vol 158 c334

said, that the frequent appearance of the Savings Bank Bill on the Paper, without any apparent chance of its being proceeded with, had caused considerable inconvenience to several hon. Members. He would, therefore, suggest that it would be better to postpone the Committee on the Bill till after Whitsuntide, when a day might be fixed on which it would be certain to come on.


said, that in the absence of his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer, he could not enter into the engagement suggested by the right hon. Gentleman (Mr. Estcourt), but he would undertake that the Committee on the Bill would not be taken before that day fortnight.
