§ SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the appeal made by him to the Leader of the Opposition and others not to discuss the general conduct of Foreign Affairs during the year in the absence of the Under Secretary of State on the occasion on which the China policy was discussed, he will give the earliest Supply day, after such necessary Irish business as has been the subject of an understanding has been disposed of, to the Foreign Office Vote?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
I am afraid I can only give the right honourable Baronet the same answer as yesterday. I think we must defer until the proper time more nearly approaches any decision as to what Supply will be taken.
