§ MR. WHITLEY (Halifax)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can now state when the consideration of the Finance Bill will be resumed.
§ MR. WHITLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the trade concerned is completely at a standstill meantime, and does he really propose to allow that state of things to go on for five weeks.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I hope things are not so bad as the hon. Gentleman seems to suggest. If they are I hope he will give us his sedulous and earnest support in hurrying matters forward.
§ MR. BUCHANAN
Is there any precedent for postponing the Committee stage of the Finance Bill to the end of July.
