HC Deb 07 August 1879 vol 249 cc478-9

Order for Committee read.


thought it would be better to get rid of this Bill. If the hon. Gentleman the Secretary to the Treasury could not make any announcement with regard to the Bill, then, perhaps, he could do so the next day. He thought that the Bill was one which could be well sacrificed.


would be very sorry to see this Bill sacrificed. The Bill was to arrange the Offices now brought together in the Law Courts, and to provide for certain consolidations. It would effect considerable saving, and would arrange the Offices under a new system. If the Bill were not passed, he thought they must pass a Suspensory Act in order to preserve certain officers. If the hon. Baronet would look at the Act he would find that the Bill was quite necessary.

Committee deferred till To-morrow, at Two of the clock.
