§ MR. ALLISON (Cumberland, Eskdale)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can undertake that before any further proposals of the Government for affording increased civil employment in Government Departments to discharged soldiers are decided upon, such proposals shall be laid before the House, and its opinion taken upon the question?
§ MR. LAWRENCE (Liverpool, Abercromby)
I beg at the same time to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the important question raised by the action of 507 the Indian Government relating to sugar and to the failure of the Brussels Conference, he will endeavour to allot a day for the full discussion of the question of the bounties on sugar?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
In answer to these Questions I have to say that in the present state of public business I can hold out no hope to be able to find special time for these matters, however important they may be deemed in themselves.
