HC Deb 15 June 1871 vol 207 c69

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the Second Reading of the Charity Commissioners Bill this Session; and, if so, if he will now fix a definite day for the Second Reading?


I am assured, Sir, that it is impossible to fix a day for the second reading; and, as undoubtedly the Bill will require some time for its proper consideration, the Government think it better that the Order should be withdrawn.
