HC Deb 20 February 1872 vol 209 c765

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, after submitting his scheme of Army Re-organization on Thursday, he will allow the Debate to be adjourned until the following Thursday?


, in reply, said, that he should wish to consult the convenience of the House in reference to the matter. He had at first proposed that the discussion upon the proposal of the Government should be adjourned until Thursday next. That day, however, was devoted to another purpose. He thought it desirable that after the Committee should have heard what the proposals of the Government were, future progress should be considered, and he would be very desirous to consult the convenience of the Committee. He believed Monday next was vacant, and he should hope there would be no objection, if there should be an adjournment from next Thursday, to go on on that day.
