HC Deb 14 April 1899 vol 69 cc1140-1

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can now say what business he proposes to take next week?

SIR C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

What Supply will be taken next Friday?


As regards Supply for Friday next I have made it a practice where possible to defer any final decision until the week in which that Supply is to be taken, because circumstances may arise which may render an alteration necessary. As regards the business for next week, I propose to put the Small Houses Bill first and the London Water Bill second. It is most important that the first of those Bills should be taken and referred to a Grand Committee, and that the Third Reading of the second Bill should be passed without delay. There ought to be no difficulty in getting these two Measures on Monday, but if I find it impossible I shall have to take so much of Tuesday as is necessary to carry out that programme. On Thursday we shall continue the discussion on the Budget Resolutions.
