HC Deb 10 July 1868 vol 193 cc1000-1

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government will undertake that the Report of the Select Committee on the House of Commons Arrangements shall be carefully considered during the Recess, so that provision according to the views of the Government may be made in the Estimates for next year?


said, that though the Question was addressed to the First Lord of the Treasury, it might be desirable, he apprehended, for him to give an answer. During the Recess Her Majesty's Government would give their most careful consideration, not only to the Report of the Committee over which the right hon. Gentleman presided, but also to the Report which he understood from the right hon. and gallant Member for Roscommon (Colonel French) was to be presented by the Kitchen Committee, with the view of proposing such alterations as might be deemed necessary in the next Session of Parliament.
