HC Deb 18 June 1906 vol 158 c1385
MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)

asked the Prime Minister whether, in fixing a time limit for the discussion of the several clauses of the Education Bill, he would also make arrangements, either by agreement with the various parties in the House or by the appointment of a representative committee, on which Mr. Speaker or the Chairman of Committees, or both, should sit, to secure that Amendments raising issues which it was essential to discuss adequately in Committee or on the Report stage should have precedence.


I quite appreciate my hon. friend's point, and agree with the object which he has in view as a general matter of procedure. But we cannot invent machinery for giving effect to what he desires for this occasion.
