§ MR. SAMUEL SMITH
I beg to give notice that, in consequence of the unsatisfactory reply given by the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies to the questions put to him on the subject of the Polynesian labour traffic, and also of the fact that I am precluded from moving the adjournment of the House owing to the notice placed on the Paper by an hon. Member on the other side, I shall raise the whole question of the renewal of Polynesian labour traffic on the next Vote on Account.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
It will certainly have to be done before the Whitsuntide holidays, and I think it may be about the 25th or 26th of this month; but in the absence of my right hon. Friend the Secretary to the Treasury, I would not like to pledge myself to the precise date.
§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
I should like to ask the First Lord of 1131 the Treasury whether any representation has been made to the Government by the Irish National teachers in respect of the National Education Bill, and whether he can add anything to what he said last night with respect to the intention of the Government to proceed with it?
I should like to ask the First Lord of the Treasury when he proposes to resume the discussion on the Burgh Police and Health (Scotland) Bill?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
At the very earliest opportunity I can possibly find. I am very anxious to complete this stage of the Small Agricultural Holdings Bill, and I think we shall be able to get through it to-day. If that is so, then we shall proceed with the Burgh Police and Health (Scotland) Bill immediately.
