HL Deb 21 April 1846 vol 85 cc786-7

said, he had to move that all proceedings on Railway Bills now pending in their Lordships' House, be postponed until Monday next, the 27th of April. He believed their Lordships were already aware that it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government to bring in a Bill for the purpose of facilitating the abandonment of railway schemes now before Parliament; and he wished to take this opportunity of giving notice that he would, on Thursday next, submit that Bill to the consideration of their Lordships' House; and that, at the same time, he would draw their Lordships' attention to a new Sessional Order which he intended moving, and which would be applicable to all the Railway Bills that would be now postponed.

Motion agreed to.

House adjourned.
