HC Deb 11 April 1907 vol 172 c384
MR. CREMEE (Shoreditch, Haggerston)

I desire to ask the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Vote for the Charity Commissioners has not been discussed in this House since 1902, but guillotined with other Votes, amounting in the aggregate to several millions; and whether he can promise that during the present session an opportunity will be afforded the House for discussing the Vote for the Charity Commissioners, and, if possible, for discussing all other Votes, in order that the practice which during the last ten years has grown up, of voting millions of money without a word of explanation or any information upon the subject being afforded to the House, shall be terminated.


The Government are entirely in the hands of the House in this matter; and if a general desire is expressed for a discussion of this Vote we shall be glad to put it down on one of the allotted days.
