HC Deb 29 March 1889 vol 334 cc1165-6
MR. H. J. WILSON (York, N. R., Holmfirth)

asked the Speaker whether, as the answer of the Solicitor General for Ireland to a question was entirely inaudible to himself and other hon. Members sitting near him, he was at liberty to ask him to repeat the answer?


That would be a very unusual course to take. There was great deal of conversation in the House at the time. It rests with hon. Gentlemen whether answers are to be audible or not.

MR. BRUNNER (Cheshire, Northwich)

Would it not be reasonable that a Minister, instead of reading his reply at the moment when every Member in the House is turning his Paper over, should delay for a moment? ["Oh!"]
