HC Deb 20 March 1873 vol 214 c1946

asked the hon. and gallant Member for West Sussex, What course he intended to take with reference to his Motion on the Malt Tax, which stood on the Paper for to-morrow night?


in reply, said, that in the event of his right hon. Friend the Member for the University of Oxford (Mr. G. Hardy) proceeding with his important Resolution with regard to the Three Rules, and in the event of Her Majesty's Government making no proposal with regard to that subject, and on a Division being taken on the right hon. Gentleman's Resolution, he should not bring on the Resolution relating to the Malt Tax. Should, however, a proposal be made by Her Majesty's Government which would render it unnecessary that a Division should be taken on the Resolution of the right hon. Gentleman, he should bring the Question of the Malt Tax under the notice of the House.
