HC Deb 23 June 1890 vol 345 cc1653-4

I should like to ask a question of the right hon. Gentleman of which I have given him private notice—whether, in view of the anxiety at present prevailing with regard to the Metropolitan Police Force, he will make arrangements for the speedy settlement of the question by proceeding with the Police Superannuation Bill, and fixing the Second Reading for— I would suggest — tomorrow?


I trust the announcement I have made will shorten discussion on the Licensing Bill. I think it ought to do so, and therefore I hope that it will be in the power of the Government to propose the Second Reading of the Police Bill next week at the latest. Certainly it will follow on this Bill as soon as it is possible to make arrangements.
