§ MR. SCLATER-BOOTH
Sir, the draft of this Bill has been completed for some time. I shall be ready to introduce the Bill on any day after this week that may be placed at my disposal by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
§ MR. CLARE READ
In consequence of the undecided answer I have received to my Question, I shall move, on going into Committee on the Valuation Bill—That the introduction in the Valuation Bill of a provisional county authority is inconsistent with, and tends to nullify, the Resolution of this House of March 9, 1877, and that the further progress of this Bill should be suspended until the opinion of the House has been taken on the promised Bill relating to County Government.
