HC Deb 20 July 1876 vol 230 c1624

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in view of the fact that after six inquiries before Select Committees of this House, the Bill for abolishing Tolls on the Thames Bridges in the Metropolis has been carefully considered, amended, and reported to this House by another Select Committee, that the plan for providing the funds is accepted by the Metropolitan Board of Works and approved by all the representatives of the counties of Middlesex and Surrey, he will be prepared to give such facilities to the final stages of the Bill as will enable the Bill to pass in the present Session?


It is quite impossible for me, with the number of arrangements I have to make at present for the progress of Public Business, to enter into any engagement with my hon. Friend, but I will bear his reasonable request in mind.
