§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER ,
in reply, said, that having had a communication from his noble and learned Friend (the Lord Chancellor), and finding that great interest had been excited in regard to this Bill, and considering the very late period of the Session at which they had arrived, and the difficulty of obtaining a day for its discussion, the Government had come to the conclusion that in all circumstances it would be better to drop the Bill for the present Session. He therefore moved 787 that the Order for going into Committee be discharged.
Order read, and discharged.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
was unable to say at present. It was a matter for the consideration of the Lord Chancellor; but he had no doubt that a Bill would be introduced next Session on the subject.
