HC Deb 14 February 1882 vol 266 cc641-2

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Resolutions as to Procedure which he has put on the Paper are intended as Sessional or as Standing Orders?


Sir, this is a question which has had the consideration of Her Majesty's Government, and I will only now point out with reference to two of the Resolutions, that they are actually Amendments of the Standing Orders, and consequently, if carried by the House, would become part and parcel of the Standing Orders. With regard to the other Resolutions, I will content myself with giving my hon. Friend the assurance that the matter is being considered; but I think I had better reserve mentioning the course which the Government propose with respect to them until I am able to make the statement which I trust I may be able to make on Thursday.
