HC Deb 14 July 1887 vol 317 cc798-9
MR. W. E. GLADSTONE (Edinburgh, Mid Lothian)

asked, if the Government could state, presuming that the second reading of the Irish Land Law Bill would be got rid of to-night, what Estimates would be taken in Supply, and whether a Vote on Account would be taken?


Assuming that the Irish. Land Law Bill is read a second time to-night, it is intended to proceed with Supply to-morrow at a Morning Sitting, and to ask for a Vote on Account for the remaining Civil Service Votes. It is absolutely necessary that we should obtain a Vote on Account for these Services without further delay. It is then intended to proceed with Supply—the ordinary Civil Service Supply—tomorrow at the 9 o'clock Sitting. It is proposed to take the Navy Estimates on Monday next; to deal with Supply on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to go into Committee on the Irish Land Law Bill on Thursday; so that there will be an interval of a week for hon. Gentlemen, if they think fit, to put down Amendments.
