§ MR. CAVENDISH BENTINCK
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether he intended to proceed with, the Ancient Monuments Bill, which was the First Order of the Day? He also asked, whether the hon. Gentleman would state, on the second reading, the grounds which had induced the Government to bring in such a measure?
§ MR. SHAW LEFEVRE
, in reply, said, it was not intended to proceed with the Bill that day; but it would certainly be proceeded with on Thursday or Friday. He would then make a statement on the subject; but he believed the hon. Gentleman himself was the only Member of the House who opposed the Bill.
