HC Deb 07 July 1887 vol 317 c82

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the fact that a Motion for the Adjournment moved for the purpose of calling attention to a matter of urgent public importance, involves if successful the loss of a Parliamentary day, he will withdraw the proposed Second Rule of Procedure, and propose another whereby such inconvenience may for the future be avoided?

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

I think the suggestion of the hon. and learned Gentleman is worthy of consideration, and I will undertake to give it the attention it requires.
