§ SIR W. EVANS GORDON
On behalf of the hon. Member for the Wimbledon Division of Surrey, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he will defer consideration of the Vote on Account (Report stage), in order to give Members sufficient opportunity to examine the new regulations of the Home Office under the Aliens Act.
§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
No, Sir, I should be sorry to put any impediments in the way of an adequate discussion of the new regulations; but I am afraid it is impossible to defer the consideration of the Report stage of the Vote on Account, and the new regulations are really confined in such a small compass that even if this were not the case, I doubt if any object would be served by postponement.
