HC Deb 16 July 1902 vol 111 cc364-5
MR. PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury, in view of the fact that, as at present arranged, not more than one day is to be given to the discussion of the salary of the Secretary of State for War, if he will afford the House further opportunity for discussion of the following military questions, which have been before the public owing to recent developments, viz., the Army Medical Department, the case of General Buller, the breach of discipline at Royal Military College, Report on education of officers, and the Courts of Inquiry into Remount and Canteen Departments.

(Answered by the First Lord of the Treasury.) I think the hon. Gentleman will find that the Votes on the Paper tomorrow embrace the various subjects enumerated in the Question, and I should hope that this opportunity will afford adequate time for their discussion.


To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can see his way to afford an opportunity for discussing the Vote for the Customs Establishment during the remaining days allotted to Supply.

(Answered by the First Lord, of the Treasury.) I am afraid I can give no definite assurance that a day can be assigned to this Vote; but perhaps, before Supply is closed, an opportunity may be found for its discussion.
