§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, they had hoped to go on with the Public Works Loans; but, from the tone taken in the House in the last few minutes, he was rather doubtful whether they would be able to do so. He proposed that the Local Budget should be taken at a later time, and he hoped the House would appreciate the spirit with which he made the postponement.
§ MR. GOSCHEN
remarked that the House would quite appreciate the spirit in which the concession had been made. The importance of the two Budgets had rendered the course justifiable which the Opposition had taken, and he hoped the right hon. Gentleman would not imagine that they intended to delay Public Business.
§ Committee thereupon deferred till Tomorrow.
