§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."
§ MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)
I think the Government ought to tell us something about the arrangements for to-morrow; we have been left entirely in the dark as to them.
§ THE PEESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVEENMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
I understand that as we meet at 12 o'clock, the Wednesday Rule will apply to the Sitting.
§ MR. CONYBEARE
We have a right to complain of the conduct of the Government. It was pointed out at the commencement of the Sitting how exceedingly inconvenient it would be to those hon. Members who wanted to get away, if the statement as to the arrangements of Business to-morrow were postponed until the end of the Sitting.
§ MR. RITCHIE
It was entirely out of consideration for the House that my hon. Friend the First Lord of the Treasury (Mr. W. H. Smith) postponed the statement until late in the evening. He desired to consult the convenience of the House. He did make inquiries, and he found it would be convenient to the great majority of Members that they should be able to get away at 6 o'clock to-morrow.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ House adjourned at half after Two o'clock.
