§ MR. H. GARDNER (Essex, Saffron Walden)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can now give the House any assurance that the Tithe Rent-Charge Recovery and Variation Bill will not be taken until the Committee on Corn Averages has made its Report?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
I am not able to give the hon. Gentleman the assurance he desires, as I remain of opinion that, whatever may be the Report of the Corn Averages Committee, it is necessary, in the public interest, that the Tithe Bills should be passed.
