*THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (The Marquess of RIPON)
My Lords, many Members of your Lordship's House have been commanded to a Chapter of the Garter and banquet at Windsor on Tuesday next on the occasion of the visit of the King and Queen of Norway. That will necessarily take away from the House several of those who desire to take part in the debates on the Education Bill In these circumstances I believe I should be consulting the wishes of the House if at its rising on Monday next I moved that the House adjourn till Wednesday.
LORD BALFOUR OF BURLEIGH
I presume there is no intention of taking 655 a fourth, day next week and sitting on Friday?
§ *THE MARQUESS OF RIPON
Oh, no; the sacredness of Friday I desire to preserve during the remainder of this session.
