HL Deb 26 February 1908 vol 184 cc1710-1

Brought from the Commons. Read 1a; to be printed; and to be read 2a on Tuesday, the 10th of March next. (No. 22).


When does the Government propose to take the Second Reading of the Bill?


As I said yesterday, I had hoped to do so next week, but, while I do not propose to suggest any postponement beyond a few days, as I have other work to do, and it is really not my legitimate business to promote Land Bills in this House, I should like a few days longer interval. If the beginning of the following week would suit the convenience of the House I would hope to bring the Bill forward then.
