§ MR. CONYBEARE
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consent to the appointment of a Select Committee to which the Bills which honourable Members have introduced, dealing with the question of Mining Rents and Royalties, may be referred.
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
The hon. and learned Member asks whether a certain Bill not yet drafted—and consequently not yet received at the Public Bill Office—is to be referred to a Select Committee. Under the circumstances it is impossible for me to make any statement.
