HC Deb 27 June 1864 vol 176 c334

said, he wished to ask the President of the Poor law Board, Whether he will lay upon the table of the House in the present Session a Bill to carry into effect the recommendations of the Select Committee on Poor Relief?


said, in reply, that the recommendations of that Committee had reference to matters of various kinds, and not immediately connected with each other, and it would probably be convenient to introduce several Bills to carry them into effect. He had directed the Report to be sent to the different Boards of Guardians, with the view of ascertaining if there were any practical difficulties in the way of adopting some of the Amendments proposed. He should shortly be in a position to inform the House what course the Government would adopt with regard to the Report. At all events, if he could not introduce any Bill this Session he should be prepared at the earliest moment of the next Session to introduce a Bill on the subject.
