§ MR. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy, &c.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the importance attached to the Land Values Bill, which is the first Order for Wednesday, 12th April, he can see his way to exempt that day from the operation of his Resolution taking the time of the House for Government Business?
§ MR. TOMLINSON (Preston)
May I ask whether it is the intention of the Government to make exceptions only for the Bills supported on the Ministerial side of the House?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
In order to remove what I think is an unfounded suspicion, I propose to make a slight amendment in my Motion, which will except from the Motion—and therefore from the discretion of the Government— the day on which the Eight Hours Miners Bill stands for discussion, and which, with respect to other Wednesdays, will not give any special grace or exception.
