HC Deb 31 May 1866 vol 183 cc1668-9

said, that as many hon. Members wished to address the House in the discussion on this Bill, it could hardly be expected that the debate could be brought to a close to-morrow night. He thought, however, he might undertake, on the part of his Friends around him, to state that they did not desire it to be prolonged beyond Monday. He trusted the Government would consent to come to an understanding as to its closing on that night.


said, that he had hoped the debate would be brought to a conclusion to-morrow night; but as the right hon. Gentleman seemed to think it could not close before Monday, he should assent to the arrangement which he suggested, on the understanding that it was then to terminate. He trusted that with a view to facilitating that arrangement those hon. Members who had notices on the paper on going into Committee of Supply to-morrow evening would not object to postpone them.
