§ On the Motion for Adjournment:—
§ * SIR J. SWINBURNE (Staffordshire, Lichfield)
May I be allowed to ask when the Post Office Estimates will be brought on again? Hon. Members are kept here awaiting their discussion, and it would promote their convenience if the Government would fix some definite time for the further discussion of these Estimates.
§ * THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON,) Leeds, N.
This is a matter in which the Government propose and the House disposes. I think, however, the Post Office Estimates will be taken immediately on the conclusion of the discussion of the Heligoland Bill.
§ SIR W. LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)
I should like to have some statement from the Government as to when the Local Taxation Bill will be taken. Is there any intention of bringing it on to-morrow; and, if not, when will it come on?
§ House adjourned at twenty-five minutes before One o'clock.
