HC Deb 06 May 1881 vol 260 c1957

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he would consider the expediency of extending the provisions of the Bankruptcy Bill to estates now in liquidation?


Sir, the subject raised by the Question of the hon. Baronet is one of great importance, and it has already engaged my careful attention. I did not propose to deal with it in the Bankruptcy Bill, because I was afraid of overloading that measure. When, however, the Bill reaches the Committee stage, I shall be glad to consider any Amendments that may be proposed with this object.
