HC Deb 09 December 1912 vol 45 c38

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Bankruptcy Bill is needed in the interests of the commercial community; and whether he will arrange for this to be passed into law during the present Session?


I am fully aware of the importance attached to the Bill by the commercial community, and the Government would be glad if the Bill could be passed as early as possible. But, in view of the lateness of the Session and the pressure on Members, I fear I cannot afford facilities for its passing this Session.
