HC Deb 31 March 1887 vol 313 c83
MR. COBB (Warwick, S.E., Rugby)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the importance of legislation upon the subject of allotments being proceeded with at the earliest possible date, the Government will bring in their promised Allotments Bill directly after Easter, and arrange so that it and the Cottagers' (Allotments) Bill, the Allotments and Cottage Gardens Compensation Bill, the Allotments of Land Bill, and the Parish Allotments Committees Bill may be read a second time and referred to a Select Committee?

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

I must repeat the answer I have already given to similar Questions. I cannot make any arrangement with regard to Bills with which the Government are anxious to proceed in this House, until the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland) Bill is disposed of.
