HC Deb 14 July 1902 vol 111 c130

I should like to ask a question as to the course of business.


As I informed the House last week, my intention was that the Education Bill should be taken today and tomorrow, and Supply on Wednesday and Thursday. I have since learned that there has been put down for the evening sitting on Wednesday a group of Private Bills which will absorb the greater part of that sitting. It so happens that Private Bills have been put down once or twice on Supply nights, and as I do not think that is quite fair to the House, I propose, under these circumstances, to take the Education Bill on Wednesday, and the Supply on Tuesday and Thursday. On Tuesday the English and Scotch Education Votes will be taken, and on Thursday the War Office Vote. On Friday the consideration of the Water Bill will be resumed.
