THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
Sir, I wish to put a Question to the right hon. Gentleman the First Lord of the Treasury with respect to a statement which he made last night relative to some important Public Business, and as 1698 to which some misapprehension seems to exist. I wish to ask, Whether, in the event—possibly not very probable—of the Second Reading of the Peace Preservation (Ireland) Bill being taken on Monday week, it is his intention to propose that the House should meet on the following Thursday; and, if so, what business will be taken on that day?
§ MR. DISRAELI
Sir, I understand the noble Lord to assume that the second reading of the Peace Preservation (Ireland) Bill may take place on Monday, and in that case he wishes to know what business we contemplate taking on Thursday.
