HC Deb 07 March 1861 vol 161 cc1535-6

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his proposed Bill on Arterial Drainage will be introduced before Easter; and, if not, whether it will be a Bill to consolidate and amend the various Acts on Arterial Drainage and on General Water Sewers now in force, or only to meet certain alleged defects in the existing Law?


said, the Bill referred to by the hon. Member was in a state of considerable forwardness, and he hoped he should be able to lay it on the Table before Easter.
