HC Deb 26 January 1897 vol 45 cc553-4

The next proposed Amendment stood in the name of Mr. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.), in the following terms:— And we humbly represent to your Majesty that, in the opinion of this House, events have occurred to require that the administration of that portion of the Secret Service Fund which is spent by the Homo Office should be subject to the examination of the Public Accounts Committee of the House.


said he had consulted with his hon. Friend the Member for South Mayo, who had undertaken to second the Amendment, and they had come to the conclusion that they would have a wider scope for discussion of the subject upon the Home Office Vote or some other vote in Committee of Supply on the Estimates than under this Amendment. Therefore they had determined not to proceed with the Amendment which stood in his name.
