§ MR. GULLAND (Dumfries Burghs)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that many Members reside or carry on business at a great distance from London, and are thereby caused serious expense in the performance of their Parliamentary duties, he will make arrangements, by payment from the Exchequer or otherwise, to enable Members to travel free between their residences and London and between their constituencies and London.
§ MR. ASQUITH
In the present state of the public finances I am not prepared to take action in the direction suggested by my hon. friend.
