§ Order for Committee read.
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
expressed a hope that hon. Members 1102 who had notices of Motions upon the paper as Amendments upon the Motion for going into Committee, would postpone them until some future opportunity, of which there would be many. The Order for Supply stood high in the list, but in deference to the wish of the House, the Government had permitted the other Orders to be disposed of first, and therefore he trusted the House would now proceed at once to consider the remaining Estimates.
§ MR. BERESFORD HOPE
said, that he had given notice of a Motion on going into Committee of Supply, for an Address praying for an inquiry on the subject of the site and plans for the proposed new public offices. This was a matter of great importance, and especially to the Government. He hoped that if he waived his right upon this occasion, some night would be fixed when the subject could be fully discussed.
