HC Deb 19 March 1875 vol 223 c81

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether it was really intended that the House should meet on Thursday next?


asked, whether it was intended to take the Public Health Bill with 326 clauses as the Second Order of the Day on Monday next, or whether it was not to be postponed until after Easter?


Sir, it is always my wish to consult the convenience of the House with regard to the conduct of Public Business; but, at the same time, the public interest must be attended to. I see by the Paper that the Peace Preservation Bill is fixed for Monday, and I shall be quite ready, if the debate on that Bill concludes on Tuesday night, to meet the wish, which I know is not confined to one side of the House, by at once moving the adjournment of the House to Monday, the 5th of April, on which day I shall be prepared to take the Army Estimates. There is no prospect of the Public Health Bill coming on next Monday.
