§ VISCOUNT WOLMER (Hants,) (for Mr. CRAIG SELLAR) (Lanarkshire, Partick) Petersfield
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is the intention 876 of the Government to introduce a measure next Session dealing with the subject of Private Bill Legislation?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
It is, of course, impossible for the Government to determine at present the exact course of their legislative proposals next Session. It must be remembered that there are several important Bills, such as the Employers' Liability for Injuries to Workmen Bill, the Universities (Scotland) Bill, and other measures of the present Session which will have to be re-introduced, and to which we must assign a prominent place. But I can assure my hon. Friend that the subject of Private Bill Legislation will receive the most earnest attention of the Government when they come to make up their legislative programme; and that they will be very glad if a measure dealing with that subject can be introduced next Session.
