§ MR. A. MILLS
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is the intention of the Government to take steps for continuing the powers of the Railway Commissioners, created by Stat. 36 and 37 Vict. c. 48, which powers will, unless renewed, expire at the conclusion of the present Session?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, that the hon. Member was under a misapprehension in assuming that the powers of the Railway Commissioners would expire at the conclusion of the present Session, inasmuch as they would not expire—except in the event of an Autumn Session —until the end of next Session. The Government had the question under consideration, and due Notice would be given before any legislation took place upon it.
