HC Deb 22 May 1903 vol 122 c1509
MR. LOUGH (Islington, W.)

asked what the business would be next week. He understood that it had not yet been announced.

SIR A. ACLAND-HOOD (Somersetshire, Wellington)

said the First Lord of the Treasury on the previous day had stated that he would make a definite announcement this day as to whether the Finance Bill would be taken before the Whitsuntide recess. The right hon. Gentleman had intended to make that statement at half-past five, but he did not think he would be able to be present at that hour, and he had, therefore, authorised him (Sir A. Acland-Hood) to inform the House that it was not proposed to take the Second Reading of the Finance Bill before the holidays.


What business will be taken?


The London Education Bill will be taken from day to day.
