§ MR. DISRAELI
said, with respect to the order of business for to-morrow, he would point out that, though a Notice Day, the House will probably at a comparatively early hour reach the Orders of the Day, all which were Government Bills; now he wanted to know whether the noble Lord at the head of the Government intends to proceed with the Bills in the order in which they stand on the Paper, or whe- 755 ther there is to be any selection or preference?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, he believed the details stood thus as regarded the business for to-morrow night. Assuming the statement of the right hon. Gentleman turned out to be correct, that the House came to the Orders of the Day at a comparatively early hour, those Orders of which the Government had charge, and which did not relate to financial business, would be postponed that they might proceed with those which did; and therefore his right hon. Friend (Sir George Lewis) would not go on with the adjourned debate on the London Corporation Bill. The next Bill, which was one of great importance, relating to the local management of the Metropolis, was in the hands of the hon. Member for Bath (Mr. Tite); but, as it contained several hundred clauses, and had only been delivered that day, he took it for granted that the hon. Member would not proceed with it to-morrow night. The fourth Bill was in the hands of the Government, and would not be brought forward tomorrow night. The fifth Bill was not in the hands of the Government; it related to the subject of stock jobbing, and was a sort of rival measure to that of the Government, known as Sir John Barnard's Act Repeal Bill. He did not know what the intention of the hon. and learned Member for Guildford (Mr. Bovill) might be with regard to that Bill; but it appeared to him that the course most convenient for the House to take, and which the Government would endeavour to promote, would be, that they should take the adjourned debate on the third reading of the Paper Duty Bill, provided they came to it at a moderate early hour—namely, by nine or ten o'clock.
