HL Deb 13 February 1843 vol 66 c395
Lord Brougham

laid upon the Table the Debtors' and Creditors' Composition Bill.

The Lord Chancellor

said, that a similar Bill had been brought in by Lord Cotton-ham, whilst Government intended to introduce another. He suggested that the progress of two Bills upon the Table should be suspended until all these measures were before their Lordships, when they might all be referred (such was the intention of the Government) to a Committee.

Lord Brougham

had no objection to that course.—Bill read a first time.
