§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he intends to proceed with the Committee stage of the Food and Drugs Acts Amendment Bill before the Adjournment; and, if so, will he state upon what day the Bill will be taken.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I hope to be able to take this Bill before the Adjournment, but I cannot give an absolute pledge.
§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY
Will the right hon. Gentleman be able to fix a day next Monday? I am sure he will recognise the inconvenience to hon. 1022 Members on both sides, who are interested in this Bill, of not knowing when the Bill may come on.
