HC Deb 15 March 1866 vol 182 cc288-9

said, he rose to ask Mr. Attorney General, Whether his attention has been directed to the Act 21 Geo. III. c. 49; and whether, in his opinion, that Act applies to Sunday lectures on scientific and religious subjects by persons learned and competent to explain the same; and, if so, whether the Act might not be amended with advantage?


said, in reply, that the point of law involved in this question would be brought before the Court of Queen's Bench in the next term; and, therefore, the House would see that, under these circumstances, he could not undergo any cross-examination upon the matter.
