§ SIR G. CAMPBELL (Kirkcaldy)
May I ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Votes in Supply are being put down in regular order as he promised they should be, because it appears to me that every day they are put down in a different order?
§ MR. JACKSON
The reason for putting them down in the order in which they appear is the necessity of meeting the exigencies of the Service.
§ MR. STOREY (Sunderland)
May I ask the Chief Secretary whether in view of the fact that the Barrow and Shannon Drainage Bills are not to be persevered with he will take them off the Paper?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
Yes, Sir; I will in each case move that the Order for the Second Reading be discharged.
§ MR. STOREY
It would greatly relieve our minds if the right hon. Gentleman would state that he intends to take the same course in regard to the Bann Drainage Bill.
§ MR. W. REDMOND (Fermanagh, N.)
When does the right hon. Gentleman the First Lord of the Treasury propose to take the Second Reading of the Western Australia Bill?
§ * MR. W. H. SMITH
I will endeavour to give as much notice as possible; but at this period of the Session it is impossible to say when any particular Bill will be taken.
§ MR. LLEWELLYN (Somerset, N.)
May I ask when the Merchant Shipping (Pilotage) Bill, which stands as the 25th Order, will be taken?
