HC Deb 07 May 1866 vol 183 cc483-4

said, he would beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, If it is the intention of the Government to refer the "Commons (Metropolis) Bill" to the consideration of a Select Committee?


said, in reply, that he thought the differences of opinion existing on the subject would be more satisfactorily adjusted by a Select Committee than by a Committee of the Whole House, and he should therefore be prepared, in the event of the Bill being read a second time, to adopt the suggestion of the right hon. Gentleman, and refer it to a Select Committee.
