§ MR. RYLANDS
asked the Prime Minister, Whether, having regard to the backward state of Supply, he would state that Supply would be the first Order of the Day on Thursday?
Arrangements have already been made for taking the second reading of the London Government Bill on Thursday; and in the event of the debate not being concluded on Thursday evening we should propose to continue it at a Morning Sitting on Friday. Whether we can get on with Supply on Friday evening or not, we propose to take it on Monday. I quite agree with my hon. Friend that it is necessary that progress should be made with Supply.
§ SIR WALTER B. BARTTELOT
asked what class of Estimates would be taken on Monday?
§ MR. H. S. NORTHCOTE
asked the Prime Minister if he could state whether the Municipal Elections (Corrupt and Illegal Practices) Bill would be proceeded with on Thursday?
MR. JOSEPH GOWEN
asked whether it was the intention of the Government to take Morning Sittings on Tuesdays and Fridays?
If it had been intended to take Morning Sittings on Tuesdays and Fridays a Motion would have been made to that effect. The Morning Sitting on Friday next, if there be one, will be without prejudice to any future proceedings, and will only be taken in case of it being necessary for 1798 the purpose of carrying forward the debate on the London Government Bill. If the debate on that Bill is concluded on Thursday, the Government will not ask for a Morning Sitting on Friday.
§ SIR JAMES M'GAREL-HOGG
said, that the debate on the second reading of the London Government Bill could not, under any possible circumstances, be concluded in one night.
