HC Deb 19 May 1862 vol 166 c1863

said, he would beg to ask the hon. Member for North Wilts, Whether he proposes to take any steps in this House in pursuance of the Motion recently carried with reference to Church Rates?


My answer, Sir, on this subject must be looked upon as the answer of an individual Member; but I consider that I have entered into an engagement with the House of Commons, individually, for the Resolution which was adopted at my suggestion last Wednesday, and I shall do my best to induce the House to affirm some principle upon which legislation may hereafter proceed. Accordingly, on Friday next, I will give a notice on the subject, unless I hear from the Government meanwhile that they are disposed to take up the matter, which I think they should do.
