Ministers und^tftke" that the new Parliament shaft'be called together on $a \ith''6t April, and they also undertake to observe the usual constitutional practice of resigning at once without waiting for Parliament to* meet if the result of the general election is decidedly against them. TJ\^ is not to interfere with "the right of. rnernb^ m Supply, to move reductions m items of the Estimates, but it is stipulated that the discussions shall \>& brief and nob unnecessarily proJk>o«eq, Messrs Fish and Section"'have* both agreed ty s^wi; Mr Ballance m giving 4sK<i h th,Q arrangement, but Sir George

Grey is understood to reserve the right of individual action, and to disapprove of any terms being arranged as between the Opposition and Government. As the Supreme Court Bill is amongst those to be abandoned, the question of MiEdwards' appointment will not b« raised this session, and his salary during the recess will have to be provided out of unauthorised expenditure.
