THE EARL OF SANDWICH
asked Her Majesty's Government, Whether the Rivers Conservancy and Floods Prevention Bill would be brought forward in this House again next Session? He was very sorry to see that, after it had passed through their Lordships' House, 1346 and been read a second time in the other House, it had been withdrawn.
§ EARL SPENCER, in reply, said, that this Bill had been given up with extreme regret and under the greatest pressure. He could assure his noble Friend that the Government would consider the matter, and, if possible, re-introduce the Bill early next Session.
