§ MR. CHARLES McARTHUR
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the expressions of opinion which have been addressed to him by shipping, mercantile, and insurance bodies in favour of the Marine Insurance (Codification) Bill, he will re-introduce and endeavour to pass this measure through its various stages at an early period of the session.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
Yes, Sir, I understand that the Lord Chancellor hopes to pass in another place this practically uncontroversial Bill. It may possibly be advisable to bring it in first in this House, but I will take the course which will give it the best chance of passing into law, and I really think that there ought to be no serious obstacle in the way.
