§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
I have to ask whether the attention of the leader of the House has been drawn to the condition of the Notice Paper for this day, there appearing upon it 75 Orders, 30 of which are Government Orders; and whether, in view of the late period of the Session, the right hon. Gentleman will consider the desirability of making 1663 a final and definite statement on the subject of the measures to be proceeded with by the Government this Session?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
I cannot answer a question of that kind without notice. The course taken by the Government to-night is evidence of their desire to afford every opportunity to the House of making progress with business.
§ MR. DILLON
I shall repeat the question to-morrow, because, whatever course may be adopted with reference to the Local Taxation Bill, I think there is no hope of our transacting all this business appearing on the Order Paper.
