§ SIR H. CAMPBELL - BANNERMAN (Stirling Burghs)
Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House what the business will be on Monday? And can 387 he give any estimate of the course of the session, and of the probable termination of our labours?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
As to next Monday, I think—especially after what my hon. friend below the, gangway has said—that it would be unwise to defer to a later date the Motion to make permanent the Rules of Procedure. On Tuesday I shall propose to take the Third Reading of the Education Bill. [An HON. MEMBER: How many days for the Third Reading?] I suppose that two days will be ample. How long the Bill will remain in another place, of course, it is impossible for me to say. But it is only in my more sanguine moments that I can anticipate our getting away before December 18th.
MR. GIBSON BOWLES
Does the right hon. Gentleman propose next Monday, or any subsequent date, to take up the Order in Debate Rule, or will he leave it in its present fragmentary state?
