HC Deb 21 April 1890 vol 343 cc1067-8

Order for Adjourned Debate on Report of Resolution [27th February] read.

*THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

This is merely a formal stage, and it was postponed till tonight, in order that the House should have an opportunity of hearing from the Chancellor of the Exchequer how it is proposed to raise the money. Now that that statement has been made I hope the House will——


I object.


I think the hon. Member will be courteous enough to allow me to make my statement. The right hon. Member for Wolverhampton desired to raise a question of considerable importance, but I asked him whether he would not consent to raise it at a later stage—when the Bill is in possession of the House—and he consented to do so. The Bill is brought forward on the ground of the unsanitary condition of our barracks. I, therefore, think it will be allowed to pass without further delay.


I regret I cannot accede to the right hon. Gentleman's wishes. I want to hear a little more as to what the right hon. Gentleman is going to do with the money.

Debate farther adjourned till Thursday.
