§ Order for Committee read.
§ (1.13.) THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Sir JOHN GORST,) Chatham
I must object, in fulfilment of the pledge given by my right hon. Friend, that other than Government Bills should not be proceeded with after twelve o'clock.
§ (1.14.) SIR JOHN LUBBOCK (London University)
I understand that the President of the Local Government Board is quite willing that the Bill should go through, and there is no opposition to it.
§ (1.15.) DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
The Government might concede a little to one of the leaders of the Liberal Unionist Party, a Party which has been such a useful crutch to a decrepit Government.
§ Committee deferred till To-morrow.
