§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury 1158 whether the proposed inquiry into the fiscal policy of the country will include the consideration of such higher pay to all persons employed under Government as will meet the higher price of food and other articles.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I admire the hon. Gentleman's thirst for information, but he really wishes to have every subject in which he is interested hitched on to the inquiry. I do not think that would be an expedient course.
