HC Deb 23 July 1862 vol 168 cc701-2

said, that as this Bill would require considerable time for its discussion, and the Session being too far advanced to permit it receiving the attention it deserved, he proposed to move that the Order of the Day for the Committee upon it should be discharged. He hoped, however, that the Government would take up the Bill in the next Session, for it was the Government alone that could combat the powerful private interests which demanded undue concessions. If they did not, he would himself re-introduce the Bill early in the Session and endeavour to arrive at some practical result.

Order of the Day for the Committee read, and discharged.
