HC Deb 04 July 1905 vol 148 cc998-9

asked if Lord Curzon had informed the Home Government that unless certain modifications were introduced into the Order recently issued regarding the Military Command in India he would resign, and what answer, if any, had been returned. Further he desired to know what explanation the Secretary for India had to give of his failure to have the Answer to this Ques- tion circulated with the Votes on Friday last, seeing that under the rules it was his absolute duty, in cases where starred Questions were not answered—as was the case with this Question last Thursday—to send the Answer for circulation.


I do not think this Question comes within the purview of the rule which allows Questions of urgency to be put after five minutes to three.
