HC Deb 03 April 1865 vol 178 c669

said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it be his intention to re-introduce the Bill for the Collection of Taxes; and, if so, to include exceptional Clauses in the same, or the compensation Clause, as before?


said, he was bound to say that very great inconvenience was felt in the country from the want of a measure of this kind, and he much regretted having failed to obtain the assent of the House to it. At the same time, it was such a measure as it would not be satisfactory to have passed unless it received a very general assent, and he could not see any prospect of obtaining that degree of assent to it during the present Session. However, he looked forward to the House legislating upon the subject on a future occasion.
