HC Deb 29 April 1915 vol 71 cc843-4

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to Clauses 15, 42, and 44 of the Lincoln Corporation Bill, whereby it is proposed to authorise the erection on the disused churchyard of St. Benedict's Church, in Lincoln, of a tramway shelter, contrary to the provisions of the Disused Burial Grounds Act, 1884; whether he is aware that this proposal has aroused indignation among many of the inhabitants of Lincoln; and whether, in view of the policy of the Government with regard to contentious business during the current Session, the Government will prevent the further prosecution of this proposal?


My attention had not previously been called to the private Bill referred to by the Noble Lord. I suggest that he should confer with the Chairman of Ways and Means about the proposal to which he takes objection.
