HC Deb 28 June 1906 vol 159 c1159
MR. COX (Preston)

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the fact that the greater part of Clause 4 of the Education Bill, containing matter of immense public importance, was last night passed through Committee, under the operation of the guillotine, without any opportunity for discussion, and whether he would consider the desirability of dropping a large number of the remaining clauses of the Bill, so as to abbreviate the proceedings in Committee in order to allow time for the adequate discussion of Clause 4 on Report.


I am afraid we cannot adopt that course. It does not commend itself to me as being practicable.
