§ MR. WHITBREAD
asked, Whether the Valuation of Property Bill was likely to come on for discussion on an early day?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, he could not give an immediate answer to the Question. At present the Government were anxious 1585 to finish the Prisons Bill and Universities Bill. Then they were backward in Supply and must get some Money Votes before the end of the month, in order to avoid the necessity of taking Votes on Account. Again, it was important to introduce the Indian Budget as speedily as possible, and he should be very glad if it could be brought forward in the course of this week. These measures must necessarily take precedence of the Valuation Bill.
§ MR. FAWCETT
thought it desirable that Notice should be given as to the day on which the Indian Budget would be brought forward, and said he would put a Question on that subject tomorrow.
