§ MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)
asked as to the business to be taken after the close of Supply and especially as to Order No. 11, the Education (Local Authority Default) Bill; also when the Licensing Bill might be expected from the Lords?
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I cannot quite state when the Lords Amendments to the Licensing Bill will be taken. I am informed that they are not of a far-reaching character. After Supply to-night I propose to take, as the first order, the Welsh Education (Local Authority Default) Bill, and the Cunard Agreement (Money) Bill, the Capital Expenditure (Money) Bill, the Capital Expenditure Laws Continuance Bill, and the Isle of Man Customs Bill.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I should be glad to take it, hut it is better as a rule to get rid of the contentious Bills first.
§ MR. BLAKE (Longford, S.)
Is it the intention of the Government to take the Irish Land Bill to-night?
