wished to know, Whether Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer could state the order of Public Business for Monday, and also what will be the probable Business for Thursday?

in reply, said, that the First Order on the Paper for Monday would be the third reading of the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill, which it was important should pass through the House of Lords before the Recess. It was not anticipated that any further discussion would arise on that Bill. Immediately after that Bill the Commons Bill would be taken, and it was proposed to proceed with the latter measure on Thursday. The right hon. Gentleman who was in charge of the Prisons Bill hoped to be able to take it on Thursday. The substantial business for Monday and Thursday, therefore, would be the Commons Bill.

reminded the right hon. Gentleman that on the third reading of the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill there would be a very important discussion in reference to a matter of which he had more than once given Notice.

said, he had forgotten that Notice, being under the impression that the hon. Gentleman did not intend to bring forward the Motion.
