HC Deb 09 July 1863 vol 172 c508

Bill considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)


said, he was informed that the clause of which he had given notice was beyond the scope of the measure. The fact was that this Bill did not deal at all with the real abuses of Greenwich Hospital. It was only a sop intended to serve as an excuse for not making any real and comprehensive reforms in the institution. If the Admiralty did not set themselves earnestly to deal with the subject, he should next Session invite the House to legislate in regard to it.

House resumed:—Bill reported, without Amendment; to be read 3° To-morrow.
