§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he intends to go on to-night with the Local Government Board (Scotland) Bill? Although it had been understood yesterday that the Bill would not be taken last night, he found that a Resolution had been passed.
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
, in reply, said, he could not help expressing his surprise at the hon. Member's want of acquaintance with the Forms of the House. The Resolution taken last night 1851 was but a purely formal proceeding. He believed that even if the Government desired to take the Bill to-night, it would be impossible to do so.
