§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in accordance with the exception he made on the occasion of taking the whole time of the House, that Bills in the Report stage should have secured to them the position conferred by the Standing Order relating to arrangement of Business after Whitsuntide, he can now fix the day on which the decision of the House may be taken on the third reading of the Oaths Bill?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
I am sorry to say, Sir, I am not yet in a position to name any day on which it would be possible to afford the hon. Member the opportunity he desires; but I recognize his claim for consideration.
