§ MR. NEWDEGATE
said, that, in the absence of the Prime Minister, he wished to ask the Home Secretary, for the convenience of Members who had not yet reached London, and of others in the country, whether the second reading of the Parliamentary Oaths Act (1866) Amendment Bill would be taken this week; and, if not, whether the Government would be good enough to name a day on which the second reading would be taken?
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT,
in reply, said, he would assure the hon. Member that ample Notice should be given of the second reading. It would not be taken this week certainly; but he could not say any more until the Prime Minister returned.
