HC Deb 30 May 1883 vol 279 c1263

said, he wished take that opportunity of asking the Secretary of State for the Home Department what Business would be taken to-morrow? It had been understood, according to the arrangement intimated yesterday, that if the Agricultural Holdings Bill was read a second time yesterday, which it was, the Corrupt Practices Bill would be taken on Thursday. But he saw that the Bill was down for Monday, and he did not see what Business was to be taken tomorrow. Perhaps the right hon. and learned Gentleman could tell the House what class of Supply would be taken, and whether a Vote on Account would be taken; also, what Business it was proposed to put down for Monday?


, in reply, said, that no doubt it was taken for granted that the Agricultural Holdings Bill would be debated two nights, and hence the Corrupt Practices Bill had been put down for Monday. It was impossible now, under the circumstances, to change that arrangement; and, therefore, it was proposed to take Supply tomorrow, and the Vote on Account after Supply. The Supply would be the Civil Service Estimates. After that Business the Constabulary Pay and Pensions (Ireland) Bill would be taken.
