§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. MARJORIBANKS,) Berwickshire
It will be to the convenience of the House, perhaps, if I make an announcement of Public Business. The Government propose to take on Thursday the Navy Vote first, and then the Army Votes, including the Ordnance Vote. The Chancellor of the Exchequer intends to make the usual Motion for the exemption of Report of Supply from the Twelve o'clock Rule.
§ MR. HANBURY (Preston)
Is it necessary to take the Ordnance Vote on Thursday? Can it be taken any time before the Easter Recess?
