HC Deb 02 March 1899 vol 67 c1057

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury when the Second Reading of the Sale of Food and Drugs Bill will be taken?


In answering this question, perhaps it would be convenient for me to state the general business for the immediate future. We take, as the House is aware, the Army Estimates tonight, and we will also take them tomorrow. On Monday the first order will be the Telephone Bill, introduced by my right honourable Friend the Secretary to the Treasury. As it is a money Bill, it will have to be introduced by Resolution. The second order will be the Food and Drugs Bill, and the third order will be the Colonial Loans Fund Bill. On Thursday next I hope my right honourable Friend the First Lord of the Admiralty will be able to make his statement on naval matters to the House, but I do not like to give an absolute pledge on that subject as yet.
