§ MR. WHITLEY (Halifax)
asked the Speaker a Question as to the Orders of the Day. No. 7 of the Orders referred to a proposal to recommit the Post Office Sites Bill, which had already passed through Committee, and Order 43 dealt 541 with a Committee Resolution with regard to the same Bill. He understood on a previous occasion it was necessary to have a Resolution of the House before the Committee upstairs could proceed to consider the Bill, inasmuch as it involved expenditure.
§ THE POSTMASTER - GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
The circumstances are these. We found that a money Resolution was not necessary if I put the purchase-money for the various sites on next year's Votes, when I shall be in a position to give the full details of the prices I ask the House to pay for the sites. That course it is proposed to take.
