HC Deb 07 July 1881 vol 263 c253

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether arrangements could be made by which, when Questions are asked which required mere Department information, the answers there to might be printed with the Votes, and thus save the time which is taken up by the oral delivery of the reply of the Department in the House by the Minister in charge?


This important subject would necessarily require a good deal of consideration. I think it could not be adopted as a general rule.
