HC Deb 04 April 1889 vol 334 cc1597-8
MR. J. E. ELLIS (Nottingham, Rushcliffe)

repeated the question which, at the request of the First Lord, he deferred from Tuesday as to the arrangement for the Easter Recess.


I have endeavoured to gather the views of hon. Members with regard to the Easter holidays, and I believe that only on one occasion in the last 20 years has the House not risen on the Tuesday morning before Easter; and on that occasion it was because of circumstances of extreme pressure of Public Business. This being so, and feeling that I am following the general wish of the House, I shall move before Tuesday, the 16th, that the House adjourn after the Morning Sitting on Tuesday until the following Thursday week.
