HC Deb 12 August 1907 vol 180 cc807-8

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether he has been made aware that there is a widespread desire among Members of the House that Parliament, should not sit in the dog days, but should be prorogued about the end of June and meet again in the later months of the year; and can he undertake that the Government will consider during the ensuing recess whether this desire can be met.


I have repeatedly referred to this widespread desire, and am myself one of those to whom it has spread; and my hon. friend may be sure that it is always present to the mind of the Government in arranging the business of the session.
