§ 31. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that Wednesday next, the 1st June, is a great historical anniversary; and will he consider the propriety, of adjourning the House over that date in order to afford Members the opportunity of suitably observing the occasion?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I presume that the hon. Member refers to the "glorious 1st of June,"but it has never been the practice of this House to adjourn in memory or in anticipation of victories.
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, though there were many victories on the 1st of June in addition to the glorious victory of Ushant, what I had in mind was the fact that the 1st of June is also the anniversary of the birth of Robert Cecil, the first Lord of Salisbury, and in view of that fact will he reconsider the question?
