§ On the Motion for Adjournment,
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
said: I think the House will expect that I should give notice in the interest of our holidays that it will be desirable to suspend the Twelve o'clock Rule to-morrow from the second Order of the Day. The first Order is the Railway Accidents Bill, and the second the appointment of the Municipal Trading Committee. I have no reason to believe that the Railway Accidents Bill will last any length of time, but it may. At the same time I have no command over the proceedings, and if we were not successful in getting to the second Order of the Day it would have to be taken on Tuesday, which would be most inconvenient to everybody. On Friday the motion for the adjournment for the holidays will be the first Order The Third Reading of the Finance Bill will be taken as the second Order on Friday.Adjourned at a quarter before Six of the clock.
