§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
asked the Government to state whether they intended to make Supply the First Order of the Day for Monday, or was it intended to take the Report of the Lords Amendments to the Irish Land Purchase Bill. The Lords had put down a most contentious Amendment, which would take some considerable time in discussion. He was entitled to ask the Government when it was intended to take the Land Purchase Bill.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
said, he was not able to say when it was intended to take the Report of the Lords' Amendments to the Land Purchase Bill, but it was understood that it would be for the convenience of the House to take the Irish Constabulary Vote first on Monday, and that would accordingly be done.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
hoped that the Lords' Amendments would not be sprung on the House late on Monday night, although, at the same time, it was desirable it should be taken soon.
§ THE LORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN (Mr. SEXTON) (Belfast, W.)
asked, would it not be more convenient to resume the discussion on the Law Charges on Monday, as they had been partly discussed?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
said, that in the absence of his right hon. Friend he must adhere to the programme laid down by the First Lord of the Treasury.
