HC Deb 05 September 1887 vol 320 c1144
MR. COBB (Warwick, S.E., Rugby)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he will, at the commencement of next Session, give the House an opportunity of expressing an opinion as to the continuance or discontinuance of the present method of taking Divisions?

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

This is a matter upon which I must confer with the Speaker and the Officers of the House, as I am unable to give a positive answer to the Question.
