§ MR. BYRON REED (Bradford, E.)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury when he intended to take the Colonial Vote?
THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREA-SURY
replied that he could not make a 705 definite announcement, but he would remind the hon. Member that the Vote had already been discussed on one day, if not on two.
§ * SIR E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT
asked whether the House had not been promised that an opportunity would be given for a discussion of the affairs of the Transvaal on the Colonial Vote, and whether the right hon. Gentleman would consent to put the Vote down first on one of the days still available for Supply?
THE FIRST LORD OF THE TUEA-SURY
did not think that he could do as the hon. Member desired. He would point out that when the Vote was last before the Committee it was competent to hon. Members to raise the South African Question.
