HC Deb 16 June 1881 vol 262 cc647-8

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If, considering the impossibility of otherwise getting any Scotch legislation this Session, he will at an early date have one or two Saturday sittings, and devote them to the passing of the Educational Endowments (Scotland) Bill?


In answer to my hon. Friend, I have to say that I should be unwilling to name the name of Saturday Sittings until it becomes a matter of necessity. I have, however, a more satisfactory answer to give him than that. I hope to be able in the course of a day or two to make some suggestions for going forward with at least a portion of the Scotch Business.
