§ SIR HENRY HOLLAND
asked the hon. Member for Salford, Whether he intended to proceed with his Motion on the subject of Crown Lands?
§ MR. ARTHUR ARNOLD
said, that, under the circumstances of the Session, he had certainly no intention whatever of proceeding with his Motion, which stood first on the Paper for this evening. But, in giving Notice of his intention to bring it forward next Session, he was sure the House would be gratified to learn that it had already produced beneficial results; and that in consequence of its appearance on the Paper the Estates Committee of the Ecclesiastical Commission had by a recent Minute, as shown in their Report, reduced the cost of management by more than £2,000 a-year.
§ MR. EVELYN ASHLEY
said, he must take the liberty of saying, after what had fallen from his hon. Friend, that the reduction was not at all due to his Notice of Motion.
