asked Mr. Speaker, Whether the Government were in Order in putting down as the second Order of the Day the Committee on the Arrears of Rent (Ireland) Bill? He believed that on Fridays, by a Standing Order, the first Order of the Day must be Committee of Supply. Although the House had passed a Resolution giving precedence to the Prevention of Crime Bill, he believed that no precedence was intended to be given to the Arrears of Rent Bill.
§ MR. SPEAKER
said, there was no doubt that the first Order of the Day on 666 Fridays should be Committee of Supply, and that, a Resolution having been passed to give precedence to the Prevention of Crime Bill, the Order of Committee of Supply should have taken the second place.
