HC Deb 03 July 1906 vol 159 cc1610-1
MB. TALBOT (Oxford University)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, considering the important Amendments made in the Education Bill, at the instance of the Minister for Education himself, he will consider the advisability of giving a longer interval between the conclusion of the Committee stage and the Report stage of the Bill, in order to give a longer opportunity for giving notice of Amendments upon the latter stage.

(Answered by Sir II. Campbell-Banner-man.) Unless the Session is to be prolonged I do not see how the interval between the Committee stage and the Report stage can be extended. The interval of five days is the same as that accorded by the previous Government for the Education Bill of 1902.
