§ MR. MARK STEWART
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, When the 746 Government propose to take the Education (Scotland) Bill as a first Order of the Day; and, whether, in the event of his being unable to name a day before the Whitsuntide Recess, he can do so after that date?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, it would certainly not be in the power of the Government to fix any day before the Whitsuntide Recess when this Bill could be a first Order, and I am not able to say when we can take it after the Recess. As the Bill has already passed the House of Lords, there will, I think, be ample time to proceed with it before the end of the Session.
