asked the Lord Chancellor, What course the Government intend to take in reference to the Stolen Goods Bill of 1882?


in reply, said, that, in deference to the objections of the trade, the course which the Government intended to take in regard to this Bill was to separate the question so far as it affected pawnbrokers, and to include this portion with the new regulations, which might he thought desirable in a distinct measure. The new Bill would not be introduced till after Easter, but whether in that House or the House of Commons he could not at present state.
