Motion made, and Question proposed,
That the Select Committee of the last Parliament 'to inquire into and report upon the condition of the River Lea, and to make such recommendations as may appear necessary,' he re-appointed."—(Sir Charles Russell.)
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Lord RANDOLPH CHURCHILL) (Paddington, S.)
I hope the hon. and learned Gentleman will not press this Motion now. I venture to suggest that the hon. and learned Gentleman will find his purpose as well served if he is satisfied with a pledge from the Government that all possible facilities shall be given on the earliest day next Session for the re-appointment of the Committee. It is hardly possible that the Committee could make serious progress with the work before next Session.
§ SIR CHARLES RUSSELL (Hackney, S.)
I am quite satisfied with the statement of the noble Lord, and ask leave to withdraw the Motion.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
