§ Bill, as amended, considered.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be deferred till Thursday."—(Mr. Matthews.)
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
said, that entirely depended upon the progress made with the Land Purchase Bill. He hoped the latter Bill would be disposed of at the next sitting.
§ MR. FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbeck)
asked, was it not proposed to take the Excise Duties (Local Purposes) Bill on the Thursday? If so, there was no hope of the Employers' Liability Bill being reached on that day. Could it not be set down for Friday or Monday?
§ MR. MATTHEWS
said, no doubt the Excise Bill would have precedence, but the Bill had better be set down pro forma for Thursday.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Consideration, as amended, deferred till Thursday.
