§ MR. BRYCE
On behalf of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for the Stirling Burghs, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can now state the intentions of the Government in regard to the "Whitsuntide recess; and what business it is proposed to take on Thursday and Friday and during next week.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
It is proposed to take discussion on the Rules tomorrow and Thursday. I can make no statement about Friday. With regard to the Whitsuntide holidays, I regret to say that I see very little prospect of our being able to extend them beyond the Thursday after Whit Sunday.
