HC Deb 01 June 1888 vol 326 c886
DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government had a serious intention of proceeding this Session with the Lunacy Acts Amendment Bill? The measure had been brought up in three different Sessions; but it had never come to anything.

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

, in reply, said, that certainly it was the intention of the Government, if possible, to pass this Bill in the course of the present Session. There was no chance, however, of being able to reach it that night.
