HC Deb 06 August 1907 vol 179 cc1846-7

Several Ministers, to whom Questions were addressed, were not present at the moment these were reached.

LORD R. CECIL (Marylebone, E.)

inquired what remedy the House had when Ministers failed to attend to answer Questions.

MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

asked if there was any remedy against the absence of private Members having Questions on the Paper.


said that in the case of a Minister being absent a private Member got a second shot at him, but in the case of the private Member being absent there was not necessarily a second barrel.
