HC Deb 13 February 1894 vol 21 c394

With regard to the Local Government Bill, it may be for the convenience of the House that I should state what are our intentions. It is expected that the Bill will return from the House of Lords in the course of to-night, and, in order that "we may lose no time, in case the business of this House should be disposed of before the business in the House of Lords, and before that Bill is set free, we should propose to suspend the Sitting of this House until a later hour, in order that the Motion may be made to print the Amendments of the Lords, so as to lose no lime in their consideration. But, at the same time, we do not think that the House could be expected to take those Amendments to-morrow at 12 o'clock. They will be circulated, I hope, in the morning, but the time for perusing them would be scanty: and, although we have not, as a rule, the privilege of observing that Wednesday Sabbath which is usual in another place, to-morrow there will be no sitting, in case the proceedings on the Employers' Liability Bill are finished tonight, as we have every reason to believe will be the case.
