§ MR. DIXON-HARTLAND (Middlesex, Uxbridge)
I should like to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can inform the House when the Budget is likely to be introduced? Perhaps I may be allowed to add that very great inconvenience is being caused in all commercial quarters owing to the delay in this matter.
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
I greatly regret the delay which has arisen in the production of the Budget. We are extremely anxious that it should be introduced, and I think I have already stated that as soon as we have obtained the second reading- of the Criminal Law Amendment Bill, my right hon. Friend will explain the Budget.
