§ MR. LEWIS
asked whether the House was to understand that the Corrupt Practices Bill would come on on Monday, though fixed for to-night?
explained that when he announced the Bill for to-night he was unaware of the fact that it had already been fixed for Monday.
§ SIR WILFRID LAWSON
asked what course the Government intended to take with regard to the two Bills making grants to Lords Alcester and Wolseley; and whether they would be re-committed, or a fresh Bill would be brought in?
§ MR. COURTNEY
said, the House would remember that a Resolution had been passed authorizing the grant of a lump sum in lieu of annuities. The course which the Government proposed to adopt was to re-commit the Bill pro formâ, in order that it might be reprinted in its altered shape; and, of course, the Notice of opposition given by the hon. Baronet would apply to the Bill when so re-printed.
§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
asked whether it was proposed to take effective Supply to-morrow; and whether it was intended to proceed with the Irish Police Bill to-morrow?
, in reply, said, that the Government would proceed regularly with the Estimates on Friday, taking effective Supply. He might now state that, in consequence of the announcement that the Motion of the noble Lord opposite would not be taken on Tuesday next, he should ask for a Morning Sitting on that day, and also on Friday next.
