§ SIR W. HARCOURT (Derby)
May I ask if the right hon. Gentleman is able to state what finance will be taken to-morrow, and, so far as he can, what 372 will be the order of business next week?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
With regard to to-morrow, the Government are bound by the existing regulation, as the House is aware, to deal on Friday morning only with Supply, and I propose to take Class 1 of the Civil Service Estimates. On Monday I propose to begin the discussion in Committee on the Small Holdings Bill, and I think it will be generally convenient that it should be taken every day next week. I shall not ask the House to give more time than the Government have at present, but to relax the regulation by which Tuesday and Friday mornings are allocated to Supply, so that we may on those days, if necessary, take the Committee on the Small Holdings Bill. We should not take the Committee on Wednesday.
