HC Deb 25 March 1904 vol 132 cc803-4
MR. LOUGH (Islington, W.)

asked if the House would meet for business on Wednesday.


asked if a reasonable time would be allowed for the discussion of the Third Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill on Monday. He wished to impeach the conduct of the Prime Minister with reference to his exercise of the patronage of the Crown.


stated that the Scottish Education Bill would be the first order on Monday, and the Consolidated Fund Bill the second. If it was for the convenience of Members, the Government would adjourn the discussion on the Scottish Bill in order to allow time for debate on the Third Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill, but he reminded hon. Members that the Bill could come on after 12 o'clock. He would consult the Prime Minister with regard to meeting for business on Tuesday evening. He would endeavour to meet the views of hon. Gentlemen, but in the absence of the Leader of the House he could not give a pledge. He hoped the House would be able to rise for the recess on Tuesday night, at any rate.

MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)

said it was not quite clear whether the House would adjourn at the morning or the evening sitting on Tuesday.

MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

said that he hoped the adjournment would be at mid-night, as an important Motion was down for Tuesday evening.

Adjourned at twenty-five minutes before Six o'clock till Monday next.
