HC Deb 17 April 1888 vol 324 c1498
MR. SETON-KARR (St. Helen's)

,who had a Motion upon the Paper upon this subject for discussion at the Evening Sitting, asked, Whether, as the Motion was to be postponed, the Government would give a pledge to supply a subsequent opportunity for the discussion of the question?

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

I think my hon. Friend has exercised a wise discretion in postponing his Motion, as the Government could not give him a complete answer this evening. An opportunity will be given him on the Estimates, or in some other way, to invite the House to grapple with and express an opinion upon this subject.


asked for a more definite answer from the right hon. Gentleman.


I will undertake that the hon. Member shall have an opportunity.
