§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (THE MARQUESS OF SALISBURY)
My Lords, it may be for the convenience of your Lordships if I say a word as to the programme of business for the next few days. It will be necessary to ask your Lordships to sit at the beginning of next week. So far as I know, the business is not of a very important kind on Monday or Tuesday, but until I look more carefully into the Order Paper I cannot say. So far as Government business is concerned, that is true. We may have to sit on Wednesday, but it will be a formal sitting, and then I hope your Lordships will have a very good holiday until April 28.
§ VISCOUNT HALDANE
Can the noble Marquess inform us what business will be taken on the 28th? Is it on the Order Paper?
§ THE MARQUESS OF SALISBURY
Yes. It is necessary to sit then because there are certain Bills the last stage of which we have to finish on the 28th, as they are Bills which depend upon a date. It may be necessary to put down effective Government business on that day. I will let the noble and learned Viscount know.
