§ MR. KEIR HARDIE (Merthyr Tydvil)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can fix a date for taking the Committee stage of the Unemployed Bill.
§ MR. KEIR HARDIE
Seeing Monday next is practically unoccupied, would that not be a favourable opportunity?
§ MR. CROOKS
I understood the Prime Minister had given way. As he is aware I have no knowledge of Latin, will the right hon. Gentleman put his Answer into English?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I was going to supply the hon. Gentleman and others with a loose translation, which is that you cannot really compare Resolutions with a Bill from the point of view of the business of the House, because the one involves First and Second Reading, Committee, and possibly a Report Stage, and a Third Reading, while a Resolution is dealt with at once as a substantive matter.
