§ VISCOUNT FOLKESTONE
(for Lord GEORGE HAMILTON) asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, considering that the Navy Estimates will not be distributed till Friday or Saturday next, he 1767 could so re-arrange the Business of the House as to allow a reasonable time for their consideration?
§ VISCOUNT FOLKESTONE (for Lord CHARLES BERESFORD)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in view of the immense importance attached to the question of Naval Estimates, he will consent to the postponement of their discussion until the Estimates have been in the hands of Members for one week?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE),
in reply, said, he was sorry to find, on inquiry, that the Navy Estimates could not be prepared and circulated until after Sunday; and therefore he would postpone consideration of them till Monday week.
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
said, the second reading of the Crofters Bill would be taken on Monday, and on Thursday probably the Civil Service Miscellaneous Votes.
