MR. PHILIPPS (Lanark, Mid)
I wish to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if the Government intend to persevere with the Irish Drainage Bills?
§ * THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH, Strand, Westminster)
It is certainly not intended to stop all the operations of the London County Council, and therefore it is intended to proceed with the London County Council (Money) Bill; but it may not be possible to take it this evening. With regard to the Drainage Bills, I must ask the hon. Member to put the question to my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to-morrow.
§ DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)
Will the Committee stage of the Infectious Diseases Notification Bill be taken this evening?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE, Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
