HC Deb 10 March 1881 vol 259 cc736-7

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he could give the House any information as to the probable course of Business to-morrow or on Monday?


If the concluding stages of the Arms Bill should not be got through to-night, we shall pro- ceed to-morrow with the Arms Bill, in the hope that in the circumstances the debate will net be prolonged beyond tomorrow, and with the intention of proposing to the House that it shall not be prolonged beyond to-morrow. I propose to state to-morrow what we expect with regard to the course of Business next week. Estimates will be put down on the Paper on the chance of their being taken—[Mr. W. H. SMITH: What Estimates?]—but not the Navy Estimates.
