HC Deb 26 July 1889 vol 338 cc1434-5

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can name a day for the discussion of the Estimates of the Post Office and Revenue Departments; and whether he will undertake that the consideration of these and other important Estimates shall have precedence over the Second Reading of the Intoxicating Liquors (Ireland) Bill?


We hope to proceed with Supply next week, but I am unable to fix a date for the discussion of the Post Office and Revenue Estimates. The Intoxicating Liquors (Ireland) Bill is down on the Paper for Second Reading tonight, but looking to the place it occupies and the notices of opposition to it, I do not think it likely it will come on nor am I able to say when it will be dealt with.
