said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can inform the House on what day the House will adjourn for the Easter Recess?
§ MR. DISRAELI

That progress at present is not in so satisfactory a state as I could desire, and I fear I must ask the House to sit in Passion Week, which I much regret. ["No, no!"] I do not see how it is to be avoided; but I will ask the hon. Gentleman to repeat his inquiry on a subsequent occasion.
