HC Deb 01 July 1878 vol 241 c499

desired to ask, What would be the course of Business on Friday next? He had on the Paper a Notice of Motion relating to Ritualistic practices in the Church of England, and the right hon. Member for Greenwich (Mr. Gladstone) had one relating to the Vernacular Press Act of India. It was not his intention to give way to the right hon. Gentleman; and he, therefore, wished to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he intended to have a Morning Sitting; and, if so, whether he would undertake on behalf of the Government that there should be a House on Friday evening?


asked, What would be the Business to-morrow?


, in reply, said, to-morrow the first Order was the Roads and Bridges Bill. If that did not take long, probably they would go on with the Admiralty and War Office Bill; but he was not quite sure. On Friday, at the Morning Sitting, they would go on with the Valuation Bill, or the Highways Bill. At the Evening Sitting, he had no doubt they would proceed with the interesting Motions of which Notice had been given.
