§ MR. H. B. SHERIDAN
said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If he will fix a night for the discussion on the Terminable Annuities Bill?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, he proposed to go on with the Bill that night, and his impression was that the discussion to be raised by the Motion of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Dudley was more germane to the Terminable Annuities Bill than to the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill. He did not anticipate any lengthened discussion on the Motion of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Buckingham (Mr. Hubbard), and he agreed with the hon. Member for Wick (Mr. Laing) that he did not think that the discussion need be taken separately on the two Motions. When they passed the second reading of the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill, to which he apprehended there would be no objection, he would make a statement on the Terminable Annuities Bill, which he had so far only been able to imperfectly unfold. If the House negatived the Motion of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Buckingham, he thought the hon. Gentleman the Member for Dudley ought to have the opportunity of bringing forward his Motion before the House went into Committee on the Terminable Annuities Bill.
