§ MR. SEXTON
I wish to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can give us some idea of the course of Irish Business in the first week after the Recess. I do not ask about the Irish Local Government Bill because it now possesses only a historic interest. But I should like to know whether the Irish Education Bill is likely to be proceeded with, and the Second Reading taken in the first week after the Recess; and any Irish Supply?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I do not think we propose that any Irish Business should be taken that week, unless, perhaps, with the possible exception of the Bill in Committee on the financial relations between the two countries. 1255 The first Order of the Day on Thursday will be the discussion on the Budget in Committee. But with that exception we shall neither take Irish Estimates nor Debates on Irish Bills.
