§ In reply to Mr. JOHN MOBLEY (Newcastle-upon-Tyne),
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
said, that the right hon. Gentleman would, of course, recognize the necessity of proceeding, in the first instance, with the Consolidated Fund (No. 1) Bill and the National Debt (Conversion) Bill, which would probably occupy Thursday. After that the Government proposed to take a stage of the Bill relating to the salary of the Parliamentary Under Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, which, after the repeated discussions that had taken place, ought not to take long. That would he followed by the Criminal Evidence Bill, and two or throe other Bills of minor importance, including the Westminster Abbey Bill. If possible, also, the Speaker would be moved out of the Chair for Committee of Supply on the Civil Service Estimates on Thursday.
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
If the state of Business will permit, we propose to rise for the Easter Recess after a Morning Sitting on Tuesday.
§ MR. J. E. ELLIS (Nottingham, Rushcliffe)
asked, whether the Employers' Liability Act (1880) Amendment Bill would be proceeded with on Monday?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
The Financial Statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer will take precedence on Monday; and, therefore, I do not know whether it will be possible to bring on the Bill to which the hon. Member refers.
