HC Deb 10 June 1887 vol 315 c1593

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, When the Select Committee on Royal Grants will be appointed?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

, in reply, said, the pressure of Public Business had been such that he had not seen his way to the appointment of the Select Committee on Royal Grants, regarding which he had in some degree pledged himself at the beginning of the Session. He was afraid he must ask the hon. Member to allow a further postponement.
