HL Deb 08 July 1858 vol 151 c1070

In answer to Lord TRURO,


said, that the attention of the Government had been directed to this very important subject, and that the law officers of the Crown had been engaged in preparing a Bill for the Amendment of the law of Bankruptcy and Insolvency. It would be mainly founded on the recommendations of the Commissioners; but there were some portions of it to which he certainly could not agree. As he should be responsible for that Bill in their Lordships' House, He was of course unwilling to lay it upon the table until he had had an opportunity of carefully reviewing and considering it. He trusted that in the course of a very few days he should be enabled to present it to their Lordships; but he certainly had not the slightest expectation of passing it in the present Session. He should, however, most earnestly invite their attention to this important subject, in the hope that by their assistance he might succeed in making the measure as perfect as possible.
