§ THE PRIME MINISTER (The MARQUESS of SALISBURY)
In moving the Adjournment of the House, I wish to say that I understand some curiosity has been expressed as to the views of the Government on the Adjournment for Whitsuntide. We propose, if there is no objection, that we should adjourn on Thursday next and meet again on June 8. It may seem that that interval is somewhat long; but the aspect of affairs in the other House does not lead us to anticipate that we shall be much overwhelmed with work before that time.
§ House adjourned at Five minutes before Seven o'clock, till To-morrow a quarter past Ten o'clock.
