HC Deb 04 August 1891 vol 356 c1258

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will to-night move the Adjournment of the House at the conclusion of Government Business instead of waiting, as he did this morning, for certain private Members' Orders to be called on?


If the hon. Member think it necessary that infants should continue to bet for the next six months, I am afraid he must take the ordinary steps to prevent the Bill from passing. The Government wish to pass the Bill, and will endeavour to do so.


The Bill has absolutely nothing to do with betting by infants, and I give notice that if the Chancellor of the Exchequer repeats tonight the tactics which he has hitherto pursued I shall take the opportunity on the Third Reading of the Appropriation Bill of calling attention to the unjust, partial, and oppressive way in which the right hon. Gentleman has used the facilities given him for Government Business.
