§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
I wish to put a Question with regard to the course of Business; and it is after what hour the second Order—the adjourned debate on Business of the House (Putting the Question)—will not be taken?
I had purposed giving an engagement not to bring it on after half-past 10; but, looking at the nature of the Votes to be taken in Supply, I think, upon the whole, it is hardly worth while to trouble the House by keeping the Order on the Paper, and I will put it off till to-morrow.
§ SIR WALTER B. BARTTELOT
said, there would be a discussion on going into Committee on the Rivers Conservancy and Floods Prevention Bill; and it was, therefore, desirable that the Order should come on at a time when the subject could be properly discussed.
said, that, without promising that the Bill should be put down as the first Order, he might give a general assurance that the Motion to go into Committee should not be made at an inconvenient hour for any discussion that was likely to arise.
