§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
said, with regard to the order of Business, he desired to know, Whether the Government intended to proceed with the Committee on the Representation of the People Bill that evening after Supply; and, also, when the Chancellor of the Exchequer intended to take the Coinage Bill?
, in reply, said, they did not know whether the Education Votes would be passed that night; but if they did pass by 11 o'clock they would go on with the Representation of the People Bill. If not, then they would take the Orders as they stood on the Paper. To-morrow they would take that Bill at 2 o'clock. In any case, he hoped they would be able to take the Report on the measure on Thursday as the first Order of the Day. The Representation of the People Bill had been so slightly changed that there was every hope of passing the Report stage on Thursday. As to Friday, he could not say what arrangements would be made.
