HC Deb 04 June 1888 vol 326 cc1030-1
MR. S. SMITH (Flintshire)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in view of his statement made in the House on July 21 last year, that— The highest legal authorities see no objection to the Legal Proceedings (Reports) Bill; and the hope then expressed by him that— An opportunity would be found of passing the Bill into law in the course of the Session; the Government will afford facilities for passing the Bill during the current Session?

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

Having regard to the amount of Business which the House has before it, I regret that it is out of my power to promise facilities for passing the Legal Proceedings (Reports) Bill this Session.
