§ SIR ALBERT ROLLIT (Islington, S.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury what is the exact nature of the obligations incurred with the French Government, in pursuance of which the Extradition Bill has been introduced; and by what means were such obligations contracted?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
said, that he had not yet had an opportunity of communicating on the subject with the Home Secretary, who was not a Member of the House at the present time. He asked his hon. Friend to put the question down for to-morrow.
§ SIR A. ROLLIT
asked the right hon. Gentleman if he proposed to take the Bill which was on the Paper for that day? He believed this Bill had not been printed and circulated.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
said, that if there was any objection made to the Bill he would put it down for the next day.
