HC Deb 31 July 1866 vol 184 cc1762-3

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, after passing this Session the Parliamentary Oaths Bill and the Qualification for Offices Abolition Bill, he considers it necessary for any, and what, reasons to introduce a yearly Indemnity Bill?


in reply, said, the Act would be clearly unnecessary with reference to those offices alluded to in the Act of Geo. IV., but there were Acts of older date which he did not think that the hon. Gentleman's remarks applied to. He was now inquiring into the matter, which was a complicated one, and he hoped by Thursday next to be able to say whether a modified Indemnity Bill would be required. He thought that it would.
