*SIR CHARLES DILKEForest of Dean) (Gloucestershire,
said that prior to the recess certain arrangements were made in regard to business, and it was said that the Local Government Board Vote would stand first on Thursday, and that certain other Votes would follow. He wished to know if that arrangement stood.
§ MR A. J. BALFOUR
said he under stood that it would be inconvenient to take the Home Office Vote which had been suggested because the Report had not yet been published, and he, therefore, proposed to adhere to the arrangement that the Local Government Board Vote should be the first taken, and that the other Votes taken should be those in Class II. On Friday he proposed to take the Penal Servitude Bill, the Dogs Bill, and the reference of the Aliens Bill to a Grand Committee. On Monday the business would be the Committee stage of the Licensing Bill.
