§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn,"—(Mr. J. A. Pease.)
§ MR. MORTON
said he objected to adjourning at that hour; they had a long evening before them. There were several Bills on the Paper, and surely under those circumstances the House might be allowed to continue its labours. He appealed to the hon. Member to allow the House to continue, because if it did nothing else it would perhaps enable him to advance his Railway Tickets Bill which he had been waiting to bring before the House for fifteen years.
§ MR. J. A. PEASE
said the reason why it was impossible to meet the views of the hon. Member for Sutherlandshire was that this was one of the allotted days devoted to Supply; if any other business were taken it would not rank as an allotted day and would therefore be lost. It was for that reason and no other that he moved the adjournment of the House.
§ Adjourned accordingly at a quarter after Eight o'clock.
