HC Deb 07 May 1889 vol 335 c1363
DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, whether, considering the great interest felt by many Members of the House in the Adjourned Debate on Supply, April, 29, he can now give an early and definite date for its resumption.

MR. J. ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe)

If the right hon. Gentleman is not able to give a reply in regard to the word "early" will he do so in regard to the word "definite"? *MR. W. H. SMITH: All I can say is that the Government will endeavour to come to an arrangement that will be satisfactory to the House generally.


Will the right hon. Gentleman kindly fix as early a day as possible, seeing that very serious accusations have been preferred by the hon. Member for Sheffield (Mr. Coleridge), and it would be unfair to the persons accused that they should be allowed to stand over.


I fully realize the importance of the matter, and will do the best I can.
