§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consider the general demand for the passing into law of the Prevention of Corruption Bill, and will take steps to secure the Second Reading at an early date with a view of it being passed this session.
(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) I should be glad to see this Bill passed, but the state of public business does not enable me at present to make any definite arrangement as to taking the further stages of the measure.
