asked what was to be done with regard to the Bill relating to Scotch government? It had been promised for to-night; but he did not see any Notice of Motion on the Paper.
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
said, he was afraid he was himself in default in this matter. He was himself surprised that the Notice was not down on the Paper for that night. The Bill was ready and the speech was ready, and the only thing wanting was the Notice. He was in Committee upstairs at 4 o'clock the day before, when the Sitting of the House came to a premature close, and it was his fault the Notice was not put down. He would bring it forward to-morrow night, if possible, and, if not, then on Monday.
