§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
May I ask the First Lord of the Treasury what arrangement he proposes to allow of Bills being brought in to-morrow?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH, Strand, Westminster)
I desire as far as possible to consult the convenience of hon. Members, and I think that the more convenient course will be to adjourn the debate upon which we may be engaged about 4 o'clock, and this will allow of Bills being brought in by hon. Members.
§ MR. J. C. STEVENSON (South Shields)
Is it not doubtful if 4 o'clock would leave sufficient time for the purpose? Would it not be advisable to suspend the 6 o'clock rule?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
I wish to meet the desire of hon. Members as to the adjournment of the debate, but I think it is undesirable to commence so early in the Session with a suspension of the Standing Order. We shall be guided very much by the number of notices which may be given to-day, and I will place myself in communication with hon. Members able to give me information as to the course desired.
