HC Deb 01 July 1880 vol 253 c1259

asked the Secretary of State for War, Why the Select Committee on the Contagious Diseases Acts is not yet appointed, a month having elapsed since the First Lord of the Treasury gave the assurance of its appointment?


in reply, said, that the Select Committee had been appointed a few days ago; but there had been a difficulty in filling up two of the vacant places in consequence of two Members who were Members of the Committee last year not having been returned to this Parliament. He would place the names of two Members on the Paper that evening.
