HC Deb 16 June 1893 vol 13 c1197
MR. GOSCHEN (St. George's, Hanover Square)

May I ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the discussion of Clause 9, he can undertake, now that the figures have been ascertained, that the Financial Clauses will soon be in the hands of hon. Members? It is very important that we should be able to consider these clauses in relation to the question of the position of the Irish Members in the Imperial Parliament. If there is to be any change in these clauses, I hope my right hon. Friend will say how soon we may expect to see them.


I confidently hope to be able, in the course of a very few days, to state the effect of the proposed Financial Clauses. My right hon. Friend will be aware that, altering, as they do, questions of money charge, it becomes necessary very carefully to consider the best mode of introducing changes of that kind into the Bill.
