§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
I wish to ask the Government whether they intend to resume the debate on the Business of the House on Monday; or, if not, what Business they propose to take next week?
We should have been glad to renew that Business had it been possible; but the necessities of Supply press upon us. We therefore propose to take the Army Estimates on Monday, and the Navy Estimates on Thursday.
§ MR. PELL
said, perhaps the right hon. Gentleman the President of the Local Government Board would be able to inform the House whether there was any probability whatever of the Rivers 561 Conservancy and Floods Prevention Bill being taken to-morrow, at a time, of course, which would admit of its being adequately discussed?
§ MR. DODSON
, in reply, said, the Bill would be put down for to-morrow, and he hoped to bring it on at a reasonable hour.
§ MR. THOMAS COLLINS
asked what the right hon. Gentleman considered a reasonable hour? Ten, or half-past?
