HC Deb 06 April 1852 vol 120 c783

begged to ask the right hon. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he would now state the course in which he proposed to proceed with public business after the Easter recess?


replied, that on Monday, the 19th inst., the right hon. President of the Board of Control would move the appointment of a Select Committee on Indian Affairs. On the 23rd, according to the wish of the House, the Militia Bill would be proceeded with. He would then propose that, with the exception of questions of great urgency, such as the financial statement, or questions of that description, they should proceed with the Militia Bill and with the Estimates. [An Hon. MEMBER: The Miscellaneous Estimates?] Yes, the Miscellaneous Estimates. He anticipated that the discussion on Indian affairs would occupy some time; but he would place such other business on the paper for the 19th as would not require a very full attendance of Members.
