HC Deb 20 March 1890 vol 342 cc1261-2

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

1. £8,052 6s. 3d., Civil Service (Excesses).


As Supply is the second and not the first Order of the Day, I desire to know if I was not in order in endeavouring to draw the attention of the Chief Secretary for Ireland to certain irregularities on the part of the Government, and which I intended to bring before the House while Mr. Speaker was in the Chair?


That would not be regular now, in accordance with the Standing Order, although it was formerly the case.

MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)

Is it not the fact that the Standing Order only requires Mr. Speaker to leave the Chair without question put when Supply is set down as the first Order? This is the second Order.


As I have said, that was formerly the practice; but the Standing Order was amended about three years ago, and that condition was left out.

Vote agreed to.
