HC Deb 25 January 1886 vol 302 cc319-20

I wish to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer a Question of which I have given him private Notice—namely, Whether Her Majesty's Government contemplate proceeding de die in diem with the consideration of the New Rules of Procedure; or whether they will suspend any such discussions for the production of mea- sures dealing with the condition of Ireland?


In reply to my noble Friend, I may remind him that when I stated it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government to ask the House to give special facilities for the discussion of the New Rules of Procedure, I added that it was subject to the intervention of any specially urgent or important Business. Any legislative proposals in regard to Ireland of the nature referred to by me on Thursday last, which Her Majesty's Government might think it their duty to make, could not properly be delayed, as my noble Friend seems to fancy.
