§ MR. MACFARLANE (Argyll)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, If he is able to tell the House on what day he expects the Dissolution to take place, and when the Writs will be issued?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir WILLIAM HARCOURT) (Derby)
I cannot go any further than the statement of the Prime Minister—that the Dissolution will take place at the end of next week; but the actual day cannot yet be stated. That depends, I believe, on transactions elsewhere than in the House of Commons. I beg leave to move, Sir, that, Committee of Supply 1855 being closed, the House at its rising do adjourn until Monday.
§ Motion made, and Question, "That this House, at its rising, do adjourn till Monday next,"—(Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer,)—put, and agreed to.
