§ MR. J. HOWARD
asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether, in conformity with the recommendations of the Select Committee appointed "to inquire into the Law and Practice and the effect of Grants of Letters Patent for Inventions," and which Committee made its Report on 8th May 1872, the Government intend to bring in a Bill this Session to amend the Laws with respect to Letters Patent; and, if not, whether the Government will offer facilities for the progress of such a Bill if brought in by a private Member?
THE ATTORNEY GENERAL,
in reply, said, that the recommendations of the Committee were under the consideration of the Government; but he could give no definite answer to the Question of the hon. Member.
