HC Deb 03 April 1862 vol 166 c446

said, it would be convenient to the House if the noble Lord at the head of the Government would state when it was proposed to adjourn for the Easter holydays.


There are many questions. Sir, asked in this House the answer to which is not so interesting as that which is now put. What we propose is that we should adjourn for the Easter holydays either on Friday, the 11th, or on Monday, the 14th inst., our arrangement as to which day it should be being made dependent on the state of public business at the time. We propose that the adjournment should be to Monday, the 28th, which will give hon. Members a clear fortnight.
