§ MR. WARTON (for Mr. LEWIS)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the fact that the three months temporary appointment of Court Valuers will expire in a very few weeks, he will appoint an early day for the discussion of the Motion on the Paper as regards the interference of the Government with the Court Valuers?
said, that his right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary for Ireland would be quite ready, on an early day, to state what the proposals of the Government were on this matter. Perhaps it would be for the convenience of the House to say that he would do it on Thursday.
§ MR. GIBSON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he would state at the same time, having regard to the deputation he received against those appointments, and to the statements of the Prime Minister in regard to them on Friday last, he would give the House some information as to the reasons which justified the original appointments?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
said, that, with the indulgence of the House, he should be ready, when he made his statement, to give such information as the House would be willing to receive.
§ MR. GIBSON
said, he wished the information given to the House before the statement was made upon it.
