§ * SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, when it is proposed to introduce the Military Works Bill, and to ask the House to make progress with the Military Manœuvres Bill?
§ * Mr. BRODRICK
The Loan Bill for Army Services is ready, and will be introduced as soon as the progress of the important Measures now in hand gives a hope of being able to proceed with it rapidly. As regards the ManŒuvres Bill, I am watching daily for an opportunity of forwarding the Measure, and if any arrangement could be come to as to the time likely to be occupied by the few Amendments still to be disposed of, I should hope to get it through by Whitsuntide. ["Hear, hear!"]
