§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
May I ask if the Government intend to take Supply this evening if the Committee stage of the Land Bill is finished? Although it is true that no notice appears on the Paper, there are many subjects that may be talked about before going into Committee of Supply.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
I cannot enter into an engagement not to take Supply this evening if the Land Bill passes through Committee, and if we can approach 883 Supply within a reasonable time. Should the Land Bill be disposed of in time, the Vote on Account will be taken on Monday, and the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill at a Morning Sitting on Tuesday. On Monday Supply will follow the Vote on Account and the Budget Bill.
§ MR. LABOUCHERE
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Land Bill will be reprinted before the Report stage is taken?
§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
As the Committee stage of the Land Bill is about to close, I desire to learn whether the Amendments agreed to in Committee and the new clauses will be inserted in the reprinted Bill so as to allow Members reasonable time to consider it before the Report stage?
§ MR. SEXTON
I presume that a sufficient interval will be allowed to elapse to enable hon. Members to consider the Bill as amended before the Report stage.
§ MR. GOSCHEN
Before answering that question I should like to consult with my right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Treasury, who will be in his place early in the week. I may 884 say, however, that on Thursday it may be necessary for us to take the Newfoundland Bill.
