On a former occasion I asked the right hon. Gentleman whether, in renewing the Bill for Parliamentary Petitions, he would not introduce it in such a form as to give the House an opportunity of discussing the details of the measure, and the right hon. Gentleman said that he intended to bring in the Bill in such a form as to give the House an opportunity of making any amendment it thought fit. I now beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, At what time he intends to introduce his promised Bill to provide for the trial of Election Petitions upon the expiration of the existing law?
In reply to the hon. and learned Gentleman, I beg to say I will bring in the Bill at an early day.
