§ 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.
§ *MR. SPEAKER
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 1847 absent there was not necessarily a second barrel.
