§ MR. T. S. DUNCOMBE
Sir, seeing Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer in his place, I wish to ask the right hon. Gentleman a question. We know that we are summoned here to-day for the Prorogation of Parliament. I wish to ask when the dissolution will actually take place—when the notification of it will appear in the Gazette, and when the Writs will be issued?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
A Council will be held on Saturday morning. We have advised Her Majesty to dissolve Parliament on that day, so that the Writs may go out on that evening.
