§ MR. FORSTER
asked the ruling of Mr. Speaker as to whether, seeing that the proceedings in Committee of Supply on the previous Thursday before the adjournment were terminated by a count-out, it was not necessary that a Motion should be made to-day setting up Supply again, and also what was the proper time for the Chairman of Committee of Ways and Means to report to the House the Resolutions agreed to in Committee of Supply on the day of the Adjournment.
§ *MR. SPEAKER
said that under the old practice, if a count took place whilst the House was in Committee of Supply, it was customary for a Motion to be made on the next occasion for Supply, that the House do immediately resolve itself into Committee of Supply. Under the new system of Supply, which rested upon Standing Order 15, that particular Motion was no longer necessary. That being so, he ruled that Supply was rightly put down as the first order for this day, and that no further Motion was required to set it up. As to the second question, following former precedents, the proper time for the Chairman to make his report was when he reported any Resolutions which might be arrived at to-day.
