HC Deb 28 February 1889 vol 333 cc591-2
MR. CRAIG SELLAR (Lanarkshire, Partick)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether Her Majesty's Government intend this Session to introduce a measure to give effect to the recommendations of the Joint Committee of both Houses of Parliament, appointed last Session to examine into the present system of Private Bill Legislation, in favour of "the establishment of Commissioners entrusted with the functions of Private Bill Committees."


It is the intention of the Government to introduce a measure dealing with Private Bill legislation, based on the report of the Joint Committee.


I beg to give notice that on Tuesday I shall ask leave to bring in a Bill for establishing a Commission to examine and report on Private Bills in Parliament and matters relating thereto.
