Parliamentary Gossip.


Wellington, August 11. It is expected that the motion of the Minister of Education for the production of the proof sheets and reporter's manuscript of the speech containing Mr Hutchison's charges will lead to another review of the whole vexed question to-morrow afternoon, and provoke a long debate. The amendment made by the House m the Coroners' Inquests Bill providing for the payment of jurors at the rate of 7s 6d per day is certain to be warmly opposed m the Legislative Council, where the measure originated. It has been ascertained that the average number of inquests held m the colony far the last four years has been 450 per annum, so that the passing of the Bill m its present form would mean an expenditure of something over £1000 a year. The supporters of Major Steward's elected Executive scheme held a meeting this morning. It is understood that they approved of Major Steward's proposal to raise a discussion anent his plan by moving an amendment to Supply, and that an early opportunity will be taken of doing so.
