HC Deb 17 March 1887 vol 312 cc535-6

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can inform the House when the Motion will be made for the appointment of a Select Committee to consider the Army Estimates?

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

It is the intention of the Government, so soon as the necessary Votes have been taken in the Navy Estimates, to move to refer the Army and Navy Estimates to a Select Committee, to report their observations on the several Votes to the House.
