§ SIR GEORGE BOWYER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, before further progress is made with the Bankruptcy Bill, the Government will obtain and lay before Parliament a statement of the French Law of Bankruptcy, and the way in which it is administered in that country?
MR. ASSHETON CROSS
I have consulted the Lord Chancellor upon this subject, and I find that it will be impossible to delay the progress of the Government Bankruptcy Bill in its early stages whilst the information asked for is being obtained; but if the hon. and learned Baronet will move for it, I will do my best to obtain such information as he wants.
