HC Deb 20 June 1873 vol 216 c1230

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce this Session a Bill to amend the Law of Homicide in general, or that portion of it which relates to Infanticide?


in reply, said, that a Bill on the subject was prepared and he should be very glad to introduce it. It would not be well to do so, however, he thought, unless there was some probability of passing it, and as to that he could say nothing with certainty in the present state of Public Business.
