HC Deb 09 March 1883 vol 276 cc1903-4

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in view of the fact that a great number of Members must be absent from the House during the first week after Easter, in consequence of their having to attend at Quarter Sessions, he will give an assurance that the Affirmation Bill shall not be proceeded with until after that date?


Sir, I cannot give any other answer than that which was given by my noble Friend the Secretary of State for War, and repeated by myself, that we will give every Notice before the second reading of this Bill comes on.
