HC Deb 17 February 1879 vol 243 cc1308-9

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If he can now state whether it is the intention of Government to introduce a Bill to amend the Lunacy Law during the present Session of Parliament?


, in reply, said, that the subject of the consolidation of the Lunacy Law was one which, in the opinion of the Government, ought to be taken up. There were other points of law requiring careful consideration, and probably they might be dealt with at the same time. He would put himself in communication with the Commissioners on the subject.
