§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN (Stirling Burghs)
said that as the Prime Minister was not present perhaps the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for the Wellington Division would answer a Question he desired to put. It had reference to the proceedings on Monday. He understood that a private Bill had been put down which might occupy a long time and he wished to know what course the Government intended to take regarding it.
THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY (Sir A. AOLAND-HOOD () Somersetshire, Wellington
said that any alteration in the arrangement was a matter for negotiation between the promoters and opponents of the Bill and the Chairman of Ways and Means. A statement would, however, be made on the Motion for the Adjournment that evening.
