HC Deb 06 July 1883 vol 281 c609

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government will give an opportunity this Session for a discussion upon the dwellings of the poor, and especially for the consideration of a scheme for the provision of houses with land and recreation ground in the rural suburbs of the large towns?


In answer to this Question, I am bound to say that the Government could not engage, in the present state of Public Business, to set aside any other Business for the purpose of such a discussion, or I think I may say generally of any discussion, except that having regard to legislative measures which it is intended to proceed with during the present Session.
