§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
It would be convenient for Treasury reasons that the Royal Assent should be given to the Consolidated Fund Bill to-morrow. I therefore move, "That this House do meet Tomorrow, at a quarter after Ten of the clock," it being, of course, understood that it will be for the purpose of receiving the Royal Assent, and that no other business will be transacted.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Resolved, That this House do meet To-morrow at a quarter after Ten of the clock a.m.—(Mr. A. J. Balfour.)
§ MR. J. MORLEY (Newcastle-upon-Tyne)
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman what Supply is intended to be taken to-morrow, and what are the arrangements for taking the Scotch Equivalent Grant Bill?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
If we are fortunate enough to get the Speaker out of the Chair to-morrow afternoon, we should proceed with the Civil Service Estimates in Committee. The arrangement with regard to Thursday, which I sketched to the House last week, still holds good, and will be for the general convenience of Scotch Members.
Later, the right hon. Gentleman said: I ought, perhaps, to state that I answered the question of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Newcastle on the assumption that we finish the Second Reading of the Indian Councils Bill tonight, of which I have no doubt.
