HC Deb 14 April 1887 vol 313 c892
MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)

Could the First Lord of the Treasury throw any light upon the floating report respecting a holiday next week; and would he be kind enough to consider whether it would not be more generally agreeable to go on with the current Business next week, and to take a clear holiday at Whitsuntide of a fortnight or three weeks?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I have certainly no intention of proposing an adjournment of the House next week. I think it would be for the convenience of the House that we should go on with the current Business, and not take the holidays until we have got through with the work in hand.

In reply to Mr. RADCLIFFE COOKE (Newington, W.),

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster),

said: It is not proposed to interfere with the ordinary course of Business on Tuesday and Wednesday next, but to go on with the Motions on the Paper.
