§ SIR WILFRID LAWSON
said, he observed on the Paper for Monday a Notice that it was proposed to go into Committee to consider the grants of money to Lord Alcester and Lord Wolseley. As he intended to oppose the making of any grants whatever, he wished to know from the Government what would be a convenient time for him to do so?
I may explain that, in this matter, we shall have to commence ah initio, owing to the change of form in which these grants are to be proposed. What the Government intend is that we should take as pro formâ the initiatory proceedings, since we may 902 assume that the House has already given assent to the general principle. Then, at a convenient hour, a Member of the Government will move the Instruction to the Committee which will be necessary in order to change the form of the Bill. That Motion will afford a convenient opportunity for raising a discussion.
