§ SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the appeal made by him to the Loader 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 China policy was discussed, he will fix a convenient day for the Foreign Office Vote?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (for the FIRST LORD of the TREASURY)
Friday, June 10th, has not yet been allocated; but it must be remembered that it would seem scarcely practicable to have two more Supply lays for discussion on foreign affairs; so it is possible honourable Gentlemen who are interested in these matters may desire a later day. If there be any general wish, I am quite ready to yield to it.
