HC Deb 11 December 1902 vol 116 cc922-3

Can the Prime Minister forecast the probabilities in regard to the Education Bill, and the business generally for next week?


The main business of the remaining part of the session is the consideration of the Lords' Amendments to the Education Bill, which may or may not occupy discussion in this House. That, of course, I cannot tell. Besides that, the House has really only to finish the bnsiness now before it—the Uganda Railway Bill, the Osborne Estate Bill, and the Militia and Yeomanry Bill, about which an arrangement generally agreeable on both sides has been come to. There is no possibility that this House will be able to discuss the Lords' Amendments before Tuesday. No doubt the Bill will be down then, and I shall propose to devote the whole, or the main part, of Tuesday to dealing with them. On Friday of this week thebusiness will be the Irish Local Government Bill, and on Monday the remaining stages of the Bills I have just named.
