§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
I should like to ask the Prime Minister, what the Business will be on Monday? The right hon. Gentleman intimated yesterday that he thought it would be convenient for the House to adjourn for several days after Monday. Will the Motion for Adjournment be made at half-past 4, or at the close of the Sitting?
I am not yet in a position to say positively that we shall be able to ask the House to adjourn on Monday. It is proposed that the House shall meet to-morrow at half-past 2 o'clock, if convenient, for the purpose of taking a stage of the financial measures. If I am in a position to say anything further then as to the state of Business, I shall be happy and careful to do so. At all events, no other legislative Business will be taken by the Government to-morrow. I trust that by Monday, at any rate, I may be able to make a positive announcement to the House. I believe it is the general desire that there should be an adjournment for some days; and, of course, the Government will carefully bear that in mind.
There will be the Financial Bills to go forward; but I am not aware that there will be any other Business.
§ SIR JOHN LUBBOCK
said, he supposed the Motion for the Adjournment would not be made to-morrow, but on Monday; because, if made to-morrow, he should lose the opportunity, which he had obtained under the ballot, of moving an important Motion in which a great many hon. Members were interested; and when the Motion for Adjournment was made he would make an appeal to the Prime Minister on the subject of his Notice.
§ MR. WARTON
To-morrow, after the Government Business has been disposed of, will the Government move that the House adjourn?
