§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS BEACH (Bristol, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to propose any legislation this Session for the purpose of carrying out the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Redemption of Tithe Rent Charge?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE,) Edinburgh, Midlothian
Her Majesty's Government do not feel disposed, under the circumstances, to project any legislation on this subject. In consequence of the great pressure of subjects upon their con- 554 sideration, they could not hold out any hope of entering into such an undertaking during the present Session.
