HC Deb 26 June 1882 vol 271 cc411-2

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, considering the importance of some of the Resolutions upon Procedure which succeed No. 1, Her Majesty's Government will consider the advisability of proceeding with them first, and postponing the further consideration of Re-solution No. 1?


Sir, I am under the impression—indeed, I remember quite clearly—that I have answered this Question at a former period. My statement was that I believed it was unusual and would not be for the convenience of the House to take a discussion on particular Resolutions. The Government did not then see any reason for taking such a step, and I do not see any reason at the present time. But before we come to any possibility of discussing the Resolutions, I will take care to inform the House of the course which the Government intend to pursue.
