§ MR. ASQUITH
said that to-morrow, after disposal of the Motion for suspension of the eleven o'clock rule, a number of small Bills would be taken, including the Fatal Accidents (Damages) Bill, Patents and Designs Bill, Tuberculosis (Ireland) Prevention Bill, and the Housing of Working Classes (Ireland) Bill. On Monday he proposed to take Navy Votes in Committee of Supply; on Tuesday and Wednesday, Committee on the Finance Bill; and on Thursday, Supply again, the Post Office Vote, and, should discussion on this close at ten o'clock the Scottish Votes.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN (Worcestershire, E.)
asked whether there would be any discussion on the Treasury Vote. He added that on that it was desired to discuss a question of some interest with regard to the settlement of disputes on wages questions in the Civil Service.
§ MR. ASQUITH
could hold out no hope of such a discussion, but a discussion could be raised on the Appropriation Bill.
§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman knew that the Treasury Vote had not been discussed during the present Parliament.
MR. CATHCART WASON
asked as to the Oyster and Mussel Fishery Provisional Order Confirmation Bill. He understood it was to come on at half-past ten, but that there could not by any possibility be a discussion. As he had been bitterly attacked with regard to it he thought he ought to have some opportunity of replying, otherwise he might have to raise it as a question of privilege.
§ *MR. SPEAKER
If a Motion is made with regard to this Bill from the Treasury Bench the hon. Member will have his opportunity.
