HC Deb 09 March 1908 vol 185 cc1133-4

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether any Member of the Cabinet will accompany His Majesty on his present foreign tour, and be present when His Majesty interviews Foreign Sovereigns or Heads of States and their respective Ministers for Foreign Affairs.

The hon. Member, on rising to put the Question, said he wished to raise a matter of privilege.


The hon. Member is not entitled to raise a question of privilege in the middle of the Questions, as it would prevent anybody else having a chance of asking Questions.


No Minister of the Crown has gone with the King to Biarritz, and I cannot say what arrangements will be made after His Majesty leaves Biarritz. But in any case I must refer the hon. Member to the Answer given on the 2nd May last year, on the constitutional practice in the matter, to which I have nothing to add.
