§ MR. LOUGH
asked if the right hon. Gentleman intended to take the division on the Irish Land Bill before the dinner interval, in view of the fact that a large number of Members desired to speak.
MR. GIBSON BOWLES
And may I also remind the right hon. Gentleman that there are also a great number of Members on this side of the House, representing English constituencies, who likewise desire to speak.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
Of course if there are any large number of Members desirous of speaking the debate can be continued at the evening sitting, but I thought it would be more convenient to hon. Members if the division could be taken at the end of the afternoon sitting. I did not suggest it with any desire of pressing on other Government business.
§ MR. RITCHIE
I propose to take the Resolution first on tobacco and spirits—the Customs and Excise—then the Income Tax, and then the Sinking Fund.
§ MR. T. HARRINGTON (Dublin, Harbour)
Will the Public Officers (Dublin) Bill be taken on Monday, and will an opportunity be afforded for discussing it?
