§ MR. P. O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the Government will give Irish Members an opportunity of recording their opinions before consent is given to increase the demand and value of gold for monetary purposes for any portion of the British Empire under the control of this House? At the same time I may also ask on behalf of the same hon. Member whether the Government will undertake to consult the views of the Members of this House before giving consent to any fresh departure in the experiment of trying to introduce a gold standard into India?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
In reply to these Questions, they will be dealt with in the statement to be made on the part of the Government in to-morrow night's Debate.
