§ MR. MELLOR
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, if the Poor Law Amendment Act (1876) Amendment Bill, which was on the Paper for to-night, was not reached before 12.30, he would name a day, or give facilities for its earlier consideration?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
I should be sincerely glad if 1437 I could see my way to assist my hon. Friend in bringing the Bill on; but in the present state of Government Business I do not think I should be justified in holding out any expectation of giving him a day.
