HC Deb 01 March 1900 vol 79 c1456

On behalf of the hon. Member for Waterford I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can now fix a date for Committee of Supply on Civil Service Estimates; and whether, for the convenience of a number of Members, he can say that the date will not be before the 21st of March.


I am afraid I cannot give any date for moving the Speaker out of the chair on the Civil Service Estimates. But I think I may indicate, at all events, the extreme probability that we shall have to get the. Votes for the Navy and the Army before we ask the House to move the Speaker out of the chair. I have promised to give a week's notice of the date on which we shall do that.
