HC Deb 10 June 1872 vol 211 cc1509-10

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If he will give a day for the disposal of the Irish business now before the House, and particularly of the Bills relating to the amendment of the Irish Grand Jury system?


, in reply, said, his noble Friend the Chief Secretary for Ireland (the Marquess of Hartington) was anxious to make progress with the measure referred to, and hoped before any long time elapsed to make a communication as to it. For the present, however, the right hon. Gentleman must be content with the answer which he recently gave as to the Public Health Bill—namely, that nothing would be gained by attempting to arrange the order of Business too long beforehand, and that when the Scotch Education and Mines Bill had been dispatched, which would be the case before long, the Government would consider anew the order of Business.
