HC Deb 17 March 1891 vol 351 cc1236-7
SIR G. TREVELYAN (Bridgeton, Glasgow)

I should like to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether I am right in understanding him to have said that the Lords' Amendments to the Tithes Bill will be taken on Thursday. I would also ask whether he can state what business will be taken on Friday?


I have every reason to hope that it will be possible to take the Lords' Amendments to the Tithes Bill on Thursday.

MR. J. LOWTHER (Kent, Thanet)

Will it be the first Order?


It will be substantially the first Order, although we may have to take one or two small matters before it. I shall, however, be able to make a positive statement tomorrow on the subject. Arrangements have been made by which we hope to get the Amendments made by the Lords printed and circulated to-morrow, or, at all events, made available to hon. Members at 12 o'clock. On Friday we shall proceed with the Bills which are on the Paper for to-day, and with other Bills.


Will the right hon. Gentleman say definitely when the Government will move the Speaker out of the Chair for the Civil Service Estimates?


I hope to do so on Monday, but we must take these measures by themselves first of all. One business must be finished before we go on with the other.
