HC Deb 16 February 1871 vol 204 c320

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If he is able to state when the Report of the Truck Commission will be laid upon the Table; and, whether he proposes to legislate upon it during the present Session?


, in reply, said, the Commissioners had finished their sittings, so far as taking evidence was concerned; but he was afraid six weeks at least must expire before the Report would be ready. Until he had had an opportunity of considering the Report, it would be impossible for him to say whether any and what alterations of the present Act might be found to be necessary.
