HC Deb 29 March 1894 vol 22 c906
MR. BRODRICK (Surrey, Guildford)

Is it proposed to take the Army (Annual) Bill to-night? If so, after what hour will it not be proceeded with?

MR. HANBURY (Preston)

asked if there was not a distinct understanding that up to the 29th of March no contentious business should be brought forward, and if the Secretary of War had not violated that understanding before Easter by getting the Second Reading of the Army (Annual) Bill without notice and before the Bill itself had been printed? He further inquired whether the Government really intended that night to proceed with this most contentious piece of business before hon. Members had had an opportunity of putting down Amendments to it?


replied, that if there was any general feeling in the House, or any feeling at all, against the Committee stage of the Army (Annual) Bill being taken that night, it would not be taken.
