HC Deb 05 July 1875 vol 225 c950

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can arrange the business of the House, so as to allow the Metropolis Gas Bill to come on at an hour when discussion can take place; and, if he cannot do so this evening, whether he can make such an arrangement for Thursday the 8th of July, or some early day?


, in reply, said, he would have been glad to assist his hon. and gallant Friend, but he really could not make any arrangement at present, or even for Thursday, the 8th of July. When the business of the Government was further advanced, perhaps he might be able to make a statement that would be more satisfactory to his hon. and gallant Friend.

In reply to Mr. RATHBONE,


said, he could not fix the day for discussing the Merchant Shipping Bill, though he felt a confident hope that day was approaching.
