HC Deb 11 May 1875 vol 224 cc475-6

Sir, I think it would be for the convenience of hon. Members if the, right hon. Gentleman the Prime Minister would inform the House what Business will be taken on Thursday. In the hope that the original intention of the right hon. Gentleman with regard to the holidays may be fulfilled—namely, that they should extend from Thursday next to the Thursday in next week—I beg to ask, what will be the Business that will be taken on the day that the House re-assembles after the holidays?


Sir, what we propose is that on Thursday we should continue the Sale of Food and Drugs Bill in Committee, if it is not finished, which I trust it will be; and then we propose to proceed with the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Bills relating to the National Debt, the Savings Banks, and the Inland Revenue. If there should be time to do so, we also propose to go into Committee on the Friendly Societies Bill. When we meet on Thursday week we intend to go into Supply.
