HC Deb 22 March 1886 vol 303 c1477
MR. SHIRLEY (Yorkshire, W.R., Doncaster)

asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill for the establishment of a Court of Criminal Appeal; and, if not, whether they would be disposed to provide facilities to a private Member to introduce such a measure; and, what are the intentions of the Government with regard to the codification of the Criminal Law?


, in reply, said, that the state of Business would not permit the Government to deal with the matters mentioned in the Question. As to whether facilities would be given to a private Member, if the hon. Member meant that the Government were to give up their own time, they were not prepared to do so.
