HC Deb 21 June 1906 vol 159 c387
MR. A. J. BALFOUR (City of London)

asked the Prime Minister when the amendments to Clause 4 of the Education Bill proposed by the Government would be circulated He desired to know what would be the distribution of Supply in the days yet remaining. That question was justified by the fact that the Government had intimated that they would restrict Supply this year to twenty days, which was the minimum, and not give the three extra days which had commonly, but not always, been given. He also expressed a hope that the right hon. Gentleman would be able to make arrangements which would prevent a repetition of the incident that had occurred that afternoon owing to the absence of Ministers at question time.


said he regretted the accident to which the right hon. gentleman referred. It was due to private business having been completed sooner than was the case earlier in the session. His right hon. friends would readjust their time-table. With regard to Supply, he would be able to give the right hon. Gentleman more accurate information on Monday. The papers with reference to Clause 4 of the Education Bill would be circulated tomorrow morning.
