HC Deb 23 July 1908 vol 193 cc365-6

I beg to ask the Prime Minister what opportunity the House will have of discussing the Supplementary Estimate for £1,464,491, Issued on the 15th July.


The Supplementary Estimates are on to-day's Paper, and will continue to appear every day in the hope that the House may find an opportunity to discuss them. If no such opportunity is found the time at our disposal does not admit of special facilities being given. I may add that the subject-matter of the largest item of the Supplementary Estimates (£1,200,000 for old-age pensions) has already been discussed in the debates on the Budget and on the Old-Age Pensions Bill, and that the item of next importance (£200,000 for the unemployed) can, I should suppose, be discussed in connection with the Vote for the Local Government Board.
