§ MR. G. O. MORGAN (Denbighshire, E.)
I bag to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether an opportunity will be afforded for discussing the Western Australia Constitution Bill before it is read a second time or referred to a Select Committee?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
I will endeavour to give the right hon. Gentleman the opportunity he desires; but at present it is impossible to say when the Bill will be taken.
§ MR. BRADLAUGH
Is the Under Secretary for the Colonies aware that there is now in London a deputation of colonists from Western Australia for the purpose of giving evidence on the Bill; and whether arrangements can be made so as not to detain them in this country longer than is necessary?
BAROS H. DE WORMS
I am aware of the fact, and it is a reason why the Bill should pass a Second Reading as soon as possible.
