HL Deb 31 July 1879 vol 248 c1695

asked the Lord Chancellor, Whether it was his intention to introduce a Bill amending the Lunacy Laws?


, in reply, said, that Her Majesty's Government were anxious to introduce a Bill to consolidate the Lunacy Laws, and in doing so to make certain Amendments not of any great importance, but which experience had shown to be desirable in the existing Statute Law; but he need not say that at this period of the Session, and in the present state of Public Business, it was impossible for the Government to introduce a measure haying that object during the present Session.
