§ MR. BYLES (Salford, N.)
I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the widely differing opinions of Members of this House on the subject, he will undertake that no final decision will be taken on the Report of the Committee on Parliamentary Debates until some opportunity has been afforded for discussion, or some effort has been made to ascertain the general sense of the House thereon.
The PRIME MINISTER and FIRST LORD of the TREASURY (Sir H. Camp-bell-Bannerman, Stirling Burghs)
My hon. friend may be satisfied that no precipitate steps will be taken in this matter and that we shall endeavour to ascertain the feelings of the House.
