HC Deb 15 March 1886 vol 303 c826

Sir, I wish to put a Question to you upon a point of Order, in view of the Standing Order of November, 1882, which prescribes that— Whenever the Committee of Supply stands as the first Order of the Day on Monday or Thursday, Mr. Speaker shall leave the Chair without putting any Question, unless on first going into Supply on the Army, Navy, or Civil Service Estimates respectively, or on any Vote of Credit an Amendment be moved or question raised relating to the Estimates proposed to be taken in Supply. Now, Sir, the Question I wish to ask you is this—Whether, this evening, if the debate arising upon the first Notice of Amendment should not be completed but should be adjourned, this Standing Order will preclude the resumption of the debate on a future day, or whether the debate will be continued on the next day on which the Navy Estimates are set down?


The debate would be continued on the next day for which Supply is set down.
