HC Deb 20 June 1889 vol 337 cc318-9
* THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH,) Strand, Westminster

I may say I hope we may get the Second Reading of the Scotch Universities Bill to-night, and if so, we propose to proceed with the remaining Army Estimates tomorrow, and also with the Post Office Sites Bill and the Civil Service Estimates, Class 3. On Monday it is proposed to take the Board of Agriculture Bill as the first Order, and then the Irish Drainage Bills and the Tithe Rent Charge Bill.


What day will the Sugar Convention Bill be put down for?


The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Mid Lothian (Mr. Gladstone) requested that the Order might not be discharged to-day, and under those circumstances I thought it well to put it forward for a fortnight. If the right hon. Gentleman wishes to have an earlier day named, I shall be glad to meet his views.
