§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in order to prevent interference with existing public engagements of Members in the Metropolis and the country, he will arrange that the new Rules relating to the Sittings of the House shall only take effect after Whitsuntide.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I do not think that on the whole the course suggested by the hon. Member would be for the general convenience of the House.
