§ MR. H. B. SHERIDAN
said, be would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the National Debt Bill, which stands for Monday next, is likely to be taken on that day, or whether he will fix some other day for its discussion?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, it will not be possible to bring on the National Debt Bill on Monday. On that day I propose to commence business with the Scotch Reform Bill, and after that I think it expedient that we should go into Committee again on the English Bill. But it is highly important to the public interest that the National Debt Bill should not be further delayed, and therefore I intend to fix definitely Thursday next for that Bill.
