§ MR. GOSCHEN
, referring to the Notice of Motion as to the constitution of the Board of Admiralty, given by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Tyrone (Mr. Corry), as an Amendment 51 to the Motion for going into Supply on the Navy Estimates on Monday, said, he wished to suggest to that right hon. Gentleman that it would meet his views if he took discussion on Vote 3—that for the Admiralty. He (Mr. Goschen) undertook to bring on that Vote at the beginning of some Government evening, so that there might be a full discussion. The Motion of the right hon. Gentleman was so important that it would, probably, absorb the whole of Monday night, and would render it impossible for him (Mr. Goschen) to make a statement on the same night on the Navy Estimates.
said, he should be very glad to do anything in reason to facilitate the progress of Public Business, but the right hon. Gentleman could scarcely expect him to comply with his request. His Motion would not in the slightest degree interfere with the right hon. Gentleman's statement on the Estimates; but if he gave the right hon. Gentleman an opportunity of making his statement before his Motion, he should be entirely shut out by that statement. He wished, in making his Motion, to call attention to the evidence given before the Megœra Commission.
§ MR. GOSCHEN
said, he feared that evidence would not be in the hands of hon. Members on Monday night.
said, he was sorry to hear that; because, printed or not printed, he must allude to it in the course of his observations.
