HC Deb 30 January 1860 vol 156 c262

said, he rose to ask Mr. Attorney General, Whether any measure will be introduced in the present Session to amend so much of the Act 22nd and 23rd Vict. c. 35, as related to investments by Trustees in East India Stock?


said, that the section of the Act to which the hon. Gentleman referred was introduced into a Bill that came down from the other House. It had, however, from the construction put upon it by the Courts been reduced to a dead letter. Lord St. Leonards, the author of the Bill, had introduced another measure into the House of Lords, and the probability was that it would come down to that House, and that hon. Members would then have an opportunity of discussing the subject.
