HC Deb 18 June 1906 vol 158 cc1358-9
MR. WALKER (Leicestershire, Melton)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, when the Colonial Office Vote is put down again for discussion, he will arrange that it shall be preceded by the Colonial Services Vote, which was not reached on the 8th instant.


As the Colonial Office Vote provides the machinery for administering the Colonial Services Vote, it naturally and properly precedes it; but the wishes and convenience of the House must always regulate the choice of Votes under the Supply Rule.
