MR. STANLEY WILSON
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury when he will make a statement as to the proposed alterations in the Procedure Rules.
§ MR. ASQUITH
My best answer is to say that I propose to-morrow, on behalf of the Prime Minister, to move for a 1035 Select Committee to be appointed to consider the question of procedure in the House of Commons, and to report as to the Amendment of existing rules and any new rules which may be considered desirable for the efficient despatch of business.
§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester shire, Forest of Dean)
Will the Committee have the power to inquire into the period of the session?
