HC Deb 18 July 1878 vol 241 c1852

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, as the Bill which he stated would be introduced either on Friday or Monday last for the appointment of a Commission to inquire into the Parochial Charities of the City of London has not been brought forward, he will inform the House what course the Government now propose to take?


After consideration, the Government have come to the conclusion that it would be better not to introduce a Bill upon the subject, but to appoint a Royal Commission in the ordinary way, and that will be done, probably, in the course of next week.
