HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 c1562

I beg to ask the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the continued fall in the price of Consols and other Government securities; and, in view of the difficulty which is experienced in raising further money at the present time, whether he will postpone all Bills which entail the finding of large sums of money, in the same way as the issue of the Transvaal loan has been postponed, until next year.


I do not know to which Bills the hon. Member refers. But all the proposals put before the House by the Government have been framed with due regard to all the financial considerations involved.
