§ Moved, That the House do now adjourn.—(Lord Hylton.)
§ THE MARQUESS OF SALISBURY
I had hoped that when your Lordships assembled this afternoon the Government would have been in a position to inform us what business the House would probably be called upon to take within the next few days and weeks.
2 But I am afraid that I myself was in fault for not having intimated to the Government that one member, at any rate, of your Lordships' House would have asked them the question, and I do not, of course, complain that there is no statement to-day. I would, however, express the hope—in which I am quite sure that all your Lordships will concur—that to-morrow the Leader of the House, or somebody on his behalf, will be good enough to tell the House what business is expected.
§ LORD HYLTON
I will convey the request of the noble Marquess to the noble Earl the Leader of the House, who I am sure would have been here if he had had any idea that the noble Marquess intended to put that question.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and House adjourned until a quarter before four o'clock to-morrow.
§ House adjourned at twenty minutes past four o'clock.
