§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the Government intend to take steps to accelerate the passage of the Welsh Church Bill, so that the Irish Land Bill may get into Committee in time to ensure its proper consideration.
[The two questions immediately following on the Paper were in these terms:—
Mr. Hanbury,—To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether, with a view to avoid the repeated annual discussions on the earlier Classes only of the Civil Service Estimates and the consequent exclusion of the later important Classes, he will this year arrange to bring forward these Estimates in such order as to provide for the later Classes being submitted at an early date to the examination of the House.
Sir Mark Stewart,—To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, if the Government are going to bring in a Bill to disestablish and disendow the Church of Scotland; and, if so, when; or are they going to adopt as their own Bill the Church of Scotland Bill now before the House, and to press it on the attention of the House this Session."]
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir WILLIAM HARCOURT, Derby)
This question and the two following questions really relate to the Business of the House, and I would submit to the hon. Member and to those who have the following questions that they should postpone them till I have made my statement, and they will arise naturally on the discussion on the Motion with which I shall conclude the statement.
