HC Deb 09 July 1861 vol 164 cc623-4

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department a question of which he had given notice, as Whether it is his intention to proceed with this Bill this Session; and, if so, whether he can state to the House positively on what day there will be an opportunity given for discussing it? His question had already been partly answered; but perhaps the right hon. Gentleman would name a day after which he would not proceed with it.


replied, that in consequence of the slow progress of Supply and the necessity of giving the Estimates precedence, and seeing that time would be taken in discussion, and that the Bill could not properly be taken in the morning, he was unable at present to name a time after which the Bill would not be taken.
