HC Deb 24 March 1896 vol 39 c65

asked the right hon. gentleman the First Lord of the Treasury whether he still proposed that the Vote on Account should be the Second Order on Friday, and whether in that case arrangements might be made to bring it on at a earlier hour than had been proposed.


said that when the House adjourned on the previous night there had been some exception taken to the suggestion that the Debate on the previous matter should be adjourned at half-past nine, and the conclusion of the Debate on the Vote of Account taken between half-past nine and twelve o'clock. He had then said that he was desirous of meeting in every way he could the views of the House, and that he would make the adjournment at seven o'clock instead of at half-past nine, on the understanding that no difficulty was made as as to the conclusion of the Debate.
