§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the House is aware that at least 20 hon. Members are most anxious to redeem the pledges given to their constituents, and express their views upon the Home Rule Bill; whether these hon. Members have been prevented from speaking owing to the length of the speeches of the Prime Minister's own followers; and whether, under these circumstances, he will allow the Division to stand over. If that cannot be done, the Sitting will be a late one?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
I regret I cannot do that. We must be prepared to encounter whatever perils fate may have in store for us. I really answered the question yesterday, and it is with great regret I feel compelled to persevere with the Motion of which I have given notice.
