§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
To ask the Prime Minister if, in view of his declaration that the Government were exceedingly desirous of passing the Public Trustee Bill, and that he fully intended to pass it this Session, and having regard to the almost daily record of fraud to the prejudice of the poor and ignorant, he can now name a day for the Committee Stage, bearing in mind that the session is fast flying away.
(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) No, Sir; I cannot yet name a day for the Committee stage, but the hon. and gallant Member may reply upon it that the Government will do their utmost to pass the Bill this session.
