§ MR. CHILDERS (Edinburgh, S.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, 439 When he proposed to take his Motion, National Debt (Notice of Conversion), which stood second on the Paper? because he understood that Motion No. 1—regarding the notification scheme of the Scottish Education Department—would be taken to night, and would occupy some time.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
, in reply, said, he would not take it after 12 to-night, although it was a Motion which did not come within the 12 o'clock Rule.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
said, he would be exceedingly reluctant to break off Supply for the purpose of bringing on this Motion. If the Motion in the name of the hon. Member (Mr. A. Elliot), with reference to the More Mortification, were not proceeded with after the Orders of the Day were disposed of, the Motion in the name of the Chancellor of the Exchequer would be proceeded with.
