Motion made, and Question proposed,
That the Notices of Motions and the Order of the Day relating to Market Tolls (Ireland), he postponed until after the Order for resuming the Adjourned Debate on Egypt (Events in the Soudan)."—(Mr. Gladstone.)
§ MR. PARNELL
asked whether, in the event of the debate being closed to-night, it was intended to proceed to-morrow with the adjourned debate on the Address in reply to the Queen's Speech?
Yes, Sir; I believe it would be in conformity with the precedent of last year and the general convenience of the House that that course should be taken. The debate would have been resumed before, but for the fact that a Vote of Censure is one which strikes at the existence of a Government, and must take precedence of other Business.
SIR R. ASSHETON GROSS
asked if the debate on the Address would come before the adjourned debate on the appointment of the Standing Committees?
§ MR. J. G. HUBBARD
Do I understand the debate on the Address will be taken to-morrow, though it will interfere with the rights of private Members?
I am afraid that private Members will have to share in these hard circumstances the fate of the Government. That debate is incumbent.
§ Motion agreed to.
