(2.52.) MR. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy, &c.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the very great importance of the Local Veto (Scotland) Bill, he will use the influence of the Government towards allowing the House to take it into consideration?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Government have no influence to enable them to alter the order of private Members' business.
I would remind the right hon. Gentleman that the Mover of the first Order to-morrow, the Eating of Machinery Bill, is an hon. Member upon whom the Government are in a position to bring influence to bear.
