HC Deb 07 March 1887 vol 311 c1409
MR. CEAIG SELLAR (Lanarkshire, Partick)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, When the Bill, promised in the Queen's Speech, for improving and cheapening the process of Private Bill Legislation in England, Scotland, and Ireland will be submitted; and, whether, having regard to the pressure of Business in this House, he will consider the expediency of having the Bill introduced in the other House of Parliament?

THE FIEST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I have to say that Her Majesty's Government had hoped to introduce the measure to which the hon. Member refers in this House; but if the state of Public Business prevents us from doing so, the suggestion of the hon. Member will receive careful consideration.
