§ MR. A. H. BROWN
asked the right hon. Member for the City of London (Mr. Hubbard), Whether he intended to proceed with the Bill on Wednesday (that day), seeing that it was the Fourth Order, and that there was not much probablity of its being brought on?
§ MR. J. G. HUBBARD,
in reply, said, the Bill was one of great importance; but as it stood a very small chance of being considered, in consequence of there being two Irish measures in the way, he was afraid he should have to postpone it. He would, however, appeal to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if the right hon. Gentleman was satisfied that the provisions of the Bill were reasonable, whether he would not adopt them in the fiscal legislation of the Session?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
I may answer the Question at once; but only to say that the subject is one which has engaged my attention, and I hope to be able to deal with it when I make my Financial Statement to the House.
