HC Deb 22 July 1898 vol 62 cc967-8

On the Motion for Adjournment—


Before the House adjourns I wish to say that I believe, from information that has reached me since I made

received sufficient proof to-night that the present wages paid at Deptford are a subject of grave discontent, and I trust that even if he is obdurate on this occasion, he will further inquire into the matter, and remedy the grievance which I am sure he will find to exist.

Original Question put, and agreed to.

the statement at the beginning of business, that it will be more convenient to honourable Members on both sides of the House to take the Home Office Vote on Friday and the War Office Vote on Thursday. I may say also that it is of pressing importance that the Consolidated Fund Bill should be passed at an early date, and I hope we shall have the assistance of honourable Members in passing that Bill.

House adjourned at 2.40.
