HC Deb 13 September 1887 vol 321 cc491-2
MR. BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Eye)

asked Mr. Speaker, as a point of Order, Whether it would be competent for him, on the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, to call attention to the present state of the hop industry, and to the general condition of agriculture?


I do not think that any such question as the condition of agriculture or of the hop industry could properly be raised on the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill. There must be some connection between the matter and the appropriation of expenditure for the year.
