HC Deb 14 August 1890 vol 348 cc1015-6

I beg to move for leave to introduce the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.

Motion made, and Question proposed That leave be given to bring in a Bill to apply a sum, out of the Consolidated Fund, to the Service of the year ending on the thirty-first day of March one thousand eight hundred and ninety-one, and to appropriate the Supplies granted in this Session of Parliament, and that Mr. Courtney, Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Mr. Jackson do prepare and bring it in.

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

I think it would be convenient if the right hon. Gentleman would say when he proposes to take the further stages of this Bill.


The Second Reading of the Bill is fixed for to-morrow.


I asked when the further stages would be taken.


As far as I can judge at present the Second Reading will be taken to-morrow, the Committee Stage on Saturday, and there will be an early Sitting of the House on Monday to take the Third Reading, by which means I hope the hon. Members will be able to bring their labours to a close on that day.


Are we to assume that at the Saturday Sitting nothing but Government business will be taken


I presume that that will be so.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill presented, and read the first time; to be read a second time to-morrow.
