said, he should wish to know, What reasons had induced the Government to postpone the Bill on the Budget, which he had understood was to be brought forward on the first Thursday after Easter. Perhaps the Secretary of the Treasury would say whether they might rely on the second reading of the Bill not being taken until after the Merchant Shipping Bill?

The Customs and Inland Revenue Bill will not be taken first to-morrow. It will be the Merchant Shipping Bill that will stand first, and I am not sanguine that we shall be able to get to the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill in sufficient time to read it a second time, but it will be placed second on the Orders.
