§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."—[Mr. Gulland.]
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
My right hon. Friend the Patronage Secretary, after consultation with the Noble Lord opposite (Lord Balcarres), and the leaders of other parties in the House, has decided to put down to-morrow, as the first Order of the day, the Home Office Vote. I am bound to say that this proposal is made in order to enable me to fulfil an engagement of long standing which I have for Thursday next—an engagement which it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for me to postpone. On Thursday we propose that the House should be invited to meet at Seven o'clock— [HON. MEMBERS: "In the morning?"]—in the evening, in order to enable hon. Members to take full advantage of the opportunity afforded of paying their respects to His Majesty at Windsor Castle. The business after Seven o'clock will be the continuation of the Debate on the Second Reading of the Finance Bill. If there is anything further which any hon. Member wishes explained, I shall be very glad to explain it.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Adjourned accordingly at Five minutes after Eleven o'clock.
