HC Deb 16 May 1895 vol 33 c1345

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, as Leader of the House, whether his attention has been called to a statement communicated to The Sydney Morning Herald by Sir Maurice O'Rorke, Speaker of the House of Representatives in the Colony of New Zealand, of the results of the operation of a time limit of half-an-hour for speeches in that legislative body, in accordance with a new Standing Order adopted at the beginning of last Session; and whether he will consider the advisability of introducing a similar Standing Order into this House?


Oh no, Sir; I think the limit of half-an-hour is a great deal too long.
