HC Deb 11 March 1878 vol 238 c1046

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether there is any truth in the intimation contained in the "Daily News" of March 5, that the Bar Education and Discipline Bill will not come on this Session; if true, whether he will explain why; and, if not true, whether he will, on the part of the Government, direct the Bar Education and Discipline Bill to be placed at the head of the Orders of the Day, so that the full Debate upon it which he has promised may be taken?


in reply, said, he was not aware of any foundation for the intimation to which the hon. Member referred. It was a matter of importance that the Bill to which he alluded should be brought on, and, if possible, passed this Session. He was afraid that at present he could not make any arrangement with regard to the time of taking it. He had already undertaken not to bring it forward without due Notice, or without giving ample opportunity for its discussion. More than that he could not say.
