§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
Three Navy Votes are, I understand, down to-night, but they appear as non-effective Supply. I suppose they will not be proceeded with.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
They were put down because last Thursday the Supply business on the Paper was concluded some time before twelve o'clock, and we were subjected to considerable criticism because there was no other Supply down. We desire to avoid such criticism being levelled against us on any future occasion, and have there it fore put these Votes down to-night.
