HC Deb 31 March 1881 vol 260 c368

asked the Lord Advocate, Which of the three Scotch Bills that stood next on the list after the First Order of the Day he intended to take up that evening; and, further, whether any of these Bills were to be deferred till after the Easter Recess?


I think, Sir, that the Question of my hon. Friend might, perhaps, with greater propriety have been addressed to the hon. Member for Cavan (Mr. Biggar). I may state, however, that if the Business of the House admit, I am desirous of moving the second reading of the Teinds Bill this evening, as I had not an opportunity of giving any explanation as to its purport when moving its introduction. The Poor Law Officers' Superannuation Bill I propose, however, to defer till after Easter; and I understand from my right hon. Friend the Vice President of the Council that he will not proceed with the Endowed Institutions Bill without due Notice being given of the day fixed for the second reading.
