§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN (Stirling Burghs)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether it was intended to take the Diplomatic Vote that night and the other Votes in Class 5: what Votes would be taken on the following day, and what would be the course of business next week?
§ SIR F. LOCKWOOD (York)
presumed the Law of Evidence (Criminal Cases) Bill, which was on the Order Paper, would not be taken that night, but if it would not be inconvenient lie should be glad if the right lion. Gentleman would state what his intentions were with regard to it.
§ MR. BROADHURST (Leicester)
asked on what date the Report stage of the 'Workmen (Compensation for Accidents) Bill would be taken.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
In regard to the Question last put me by the hon. Member for Leicester, I have to say the Report stages of the Compensation for Accidents Bill will be taken on Monday, July 5, and if necessary the following days. In answer to the other Questions, I may say that of course we shall not take any Bill at all to-night except the Report stage upon the Scotch Education Grant, which we hope to get through. To-morrow night will be devoted to Scotch Estimates. With regard to next week, the first Order on Monday will be the London Water Bill, and the second the Scotch Education Bill. On Tuesday the Finance Bill will be taken, and that is as far as I can venture to prophesy. We shall take the Consular and Diplomatic Vote to-night; but the Foreign Office Vote will not be taken till a later day.
