HC Deb 07 July 1881 vol 263 cc257-8

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the Government intend to absorb Wednesday July 20th with their business, when the Bill for better securing the purity of Beer is the first Order for Second Reading?


, in reply, said, he did not know whether the hon. and gallant Member saw a felicitous connection between a measure for promoting the purity of beer and the absorption of Wednesday by Government Business. He should be glad if the Committee were concluded before Wednesday. As he had stated, it was their duty to go forward with the Committee from day to day; and until it was concluded he was afraid the Bill referred to could not come on.
