HC Deb 28 July 1873 vol 217 c1098

moved, that on Wednesday next, and every succeeding Wednesday, Government Orders of the Day do have precedence.


said, that the result of the proceeding just taken by his right hon. Friend would be to prevent any private Member from bringing forward any subject. He would, therefore, ask the Secretary of State for War, whether, and when, he intends to nominate the Royal Commission on Officers' grievances arising from the Abolition of Purchase? He had been unable to give Notice of the Question; but after what had occurred "elsewhere," the right hon. Gentleman would, no doubt be prepared to answer it.


said, an Answer to an Address from the other House of Parliament ought, in the first instance, to be communicated to that House. When that Answer had been given, he should be able to afford the hon. Gentleman any information he desired.


said, he would take the earliest opportunity of calling attention to the subject.

Motion agreed to.
