§ SIR JOHN KINLOCH (Perth, E.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the interest taken by the people of Scotland in the Registration of Voters (Scotland) Amendment Bill, the Government intend to take the discussion on Second Reading before Whitsuntide?
§ DR. MACGREGOR (Inverness-shire)
At the same time, I will ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he can give such facilities as will admit of the Scotch Registration Bill being considered and passed into law this Session?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
The Government look upon the Registration Bills for England and Scotland as united, in being a part of the necessary work of the Session—of the work which we intend to use every effort in our power to get through. I do not think I should be wise, in the present state of business, if I attempted to specify the precise time at which we shall take the Second Reading.
