HC Deb 16 July 1866 vol 184 cc820-1

said, he wished to ask, What course was intended to be pursued with reference to the Bankruptcy Bill?


in reply, said, he thought that the hon. Member would not be surprised, knowing as he did the magnitude and importance of the subject, and also the length of the Bill, when he heard that it was not the intention of the Government to proceed with the Bill during the present Session. Seeing, however, that it had been stated in the other House of Parliament that the Government considered this to be one of the most pressing matters to which their attention should be directed, he had only to add that he hoped to introduce either this Bill, or some modification of it, at the earliest moment next Session.
