§ SIR JOHN PAKINGTON
said, he wished to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, What are his intentions in regard to two subjects which are now exciting great interest; whether he intends to introduce a Bill for the amendment of the Highway Act; and whether he will bring in the Bill he promised for the improvement of discipline in county and borough prisons?
§ SIR GEORGE GREY
replied, that the Bill regarding highways was in print, and would be soon introduced. With regard to the other measure, he was waiting to receive the Report of medical men as to the dietary of borough prisons before he completed the provisions of the Bill.
