§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR (City of London)
asked the Prime Minister whether the usual facilities would be given for the discussion of the Motion in reference to the attitude of the Government towards the Colonial Conference which stood on the Paper in the name of his right hon. friend the Member for St. George's, Hanover Square †He also desired to know what Irish Votes were to be taken in Committee of Supply on Thursday, and what was the business for Friday.
§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
said that of course the Government were ready to assign a day for the discussion of the Motion of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for St. George's. He hoped to be able on Thursday to fix the day, when he made his promised statement in regard to the business of next week, and not as to business generally as had been suggested by some of their instructors in the Press. He had not got so far as that. On Thursday the Vote for University education in Ireland would be taken, and on Friday the finances of the Irish Land Act would be discussed on a Motion which the hon. Gentleman the Member for Waterford had placed on the Paper.
