Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman at the head of the Government will state, whether there is any chance of the Navy Estimates being on the Paper on Monday next, or whether they will be the first Order of the Day on Thursday?

They cannot be brought forward on Monday, but I understand they will be brought forward on Thursday.

I should like to know what will be the exact course of Business on Monday? Rumours on this side of the House say that another Motion respecting the Ashantee War is to be discussed before the Estimates come on.

I do not know anything of the Motion to which the right hon. Gentleman refers. There will be the Report of the Committee of Ways and Means, then Supply, and at half-past 10 the Bill of which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department has given Notice.

We are told here, on what appears to be good authority, that an arrangement has been made with the Government that the hon. Member for Tamworth (Mr. Hanbury) is to bring on the Motion of which he has given Notice, which will give rise to a long discussion.

I cannot place any restriction on the privilege of hon. Members to bring forward Motions on going into Committee of Supply, and there will probably be that and other Motions. I only gave the programme of the Government Business.

Is the Report of the Committee on Ways and Means to be taken as the first Question on Monday? [Mr. DISRAELI: Yes.] Then that will give the hon. Member for Tam-worth an opportunity.

The Report of Ways and Means will be taken first, and afterwards the Motion to go into Committee of Supply.
