§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN,

§ EDWARD REX.
§ His Majesty, taking into consideration the eminent services rendered by the Earl of Cromer, O.M., G.C.B., G.C.M.G., K.C.S.I., C.I.E., formerly Agent and Consul-General in Egypt, and being desirous in recognition of such services to confer upon him some signal mark of His favour, recommends to His faithful Commons that He should be enabled to grant Lord Cromer the sum of £50,000.
§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I beg to move, Sir, that His Majesty's gracious Message be referred to Committee of Supply.
§ Ordered, "That His Majesty's Most Gracious Message be referred to the Committee of Supply."—(Sir II. Campbell-Bannerman.)
§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
