§ MR. WHALLEY moved for leave to bring in a Bill to discontinue the taking of tolls on the turnpike roads now existing in England and Wales, and to provide for the maintenance of such roads as public highways, and for the discharge of debts due thereon by voluntary commutation.
said, there was not any provision made by the Bill for the payment of the debts due by the roads. The Bill seemed to be one to authorize the discontinuance of the payment of debts. He did not think there was any possibility to frame a Bill that could carry out these objects.
Motion agreed to.
Bill to discontinue the Taking of Toll on the Turnpike Roads now existing in England and Wales, and to provide for the maintenance of such Roads as Public Highways, and for the discharge of the debts due thereon by voluntary commutation, ordered to be brought in by Mr. WHALLEY and Mr. M'MAHON.
