HC Deb 09 April 1886 vol 304 c1174
MR. BADEN-POWELL (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, it being an exceptional case, any special arrangements can be made for the accommodation in the galleries of this House of the numerous distinguished Members of the Governments and Legislatures of our Colonies, who are intending to visit London in the course of the spring, in connection with the Indian and Colonial Exhibition, and who may wish to be present at Sittings of this House?


Having been requested by the Prime Minister to answer this Question, I beg, in the first place, to refer the hon. Member to the answer I recently gave to the hon. Member for North Meath. I may further assure him that I understand that the authorities of the House are sensible of the natural desire of Members of Colonial Legislatures to witness debates, and will do all that in them lies to provide them with seats on application being made for them by their Colonial Agent.
