HC Deb 16 August 1889 vol 339 c1499
MR. G. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)

May I ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether it is intended to proceed with the Statute Law Revision Bill?

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

Will the right hon. Gentleman now state what will be the effect of the withdrawal of the Tithe Bill on the immediate progress of business?


May I ask when it is proposed to take the Light Railways Bill, and whether the Leader of the House will cause the Bill to be examined in the light of the recent ruling of the Speaker, in order to see whether the measure is not substantially a new Bill?

MR. BYEON REED (Bradford, E.)

I beg to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he can give the House any information with regard to the proposal of the right hon. Member for Derby, that a new Tithe Bill should be introduced?

SIR J. SWINBURNE (Staffordshire, Lichfield)

May I ask whether the Government will grant facilities for passing the Intoxicating Liquors (Ireland) Bill?


May I remind the Leader of the House that we have had the Light Railways (Ireland) Bill in its present form only about half an hour in our hands?

MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone,)

I think, Sir, it is time that Irish Members should know what the Government intend to do with regard to the Irish Sunday Closing Bill.


I think it will be convenient if the First Lord of the Treasury will state, when he moves the Motion with regard to Saturday's Sitting, what Bills the Government intend to proceed with.
