§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Committee thereon be deferred till To-morrow, at Two of the clock."
§ SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON
remarked that Supply had not yet been closed, and until they had closed it they could not bring in the Appropriation Bill. He might say that they proposed to bring it in the next day, when Supply was brought in.
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
observed, that the Resolution was usually brought in on the night that Committee of Supply was closed.
§ SIR JULIAN GOLDSMID
said, that the fact was that the Government had told them that they intended to close 486 Supply that night; and now that it was announced that they had no intention of doing so the House felt very much disappointed. By Supply not being closed that night the Government had extended the Session by a day, to which he individually did not object, but which did not suit the convenience of many hon. Members.
§ MR. E. JENKINS
wished to remark that hon. Members on the Opposition side did not altogether agree with their new leading men in the line which they were taking. As it was, they did not often agree with the occupants of the Front Opposition Bench, and it seemed to him that the present occupants of that Bench took no better line than the original one. So far as he was concerned, he was not anxious to have the Resolution introduced that night.
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Committee deferred till To-morrow, at Two of the clock.
