HC Deb 19 June 1890 vol 345 c1371
MR. ESSLEMONT (Aberdeen, E.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he has further considered the question as the advisability of presenting the Civil Service Estimates this year in a different order to that which has hitherto obtained, so that the later classes of Votes might be submitted to the Committee at a reasonable date, with a view to the adequate discussion of the same; and whether he can now state when it is proposed to present the Post Office and the Revenue Estimates to the Committee?


The Government have already been endeavouring to meet the wishes of Members as to the order in which the Civil Service Estimates are taken. I cannot yet say on what day the Post Office and Revenue Estimates will be dealt with.
