HC Deb 26 June 1888 vol 327 cc1289-90
MR. HOWORTH (Salford, S.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If it is the intention of the Government shortly to ask the House that the whole Sittings on Tuesdays and Fridays for the remainder of the Session may be allotted to Government Business?

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

It is probable that the Government will have to ask the House for further facilities for dealing with Government Business.

MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)

asked, whether these facilities would touch Wednesdays as well as Tuesdays and Fridays?


said, he could not say what course he should be obliged to take until he made the announcement.


asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman, if his facilities extended to Wednesdays, would consider the point urged by him early in the Session—that the operation of the New Rule practically deprived private Members of any opportunity of proceeding with Opposed Bills?
