HC Deb 10 April 1888 vol 324 c869
MR. WHITMORE (Chelsea)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, with a view to shortening and simplifying the debate on the second reading of the Local Government Bill, he will give an assurance that, when Clause 35 is reached, adequate time will be given for the discussion of the general application of the Bill to the Metropolis.

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

, in reply, said, that ample opportunity would be given for the discussion of the questions affecting the Metropolis when Clause 35 was reached; and he could not doubt that that would be the best opportunity for dealing with all the Metropolitan questions in connection with the measure.
