§ SIR F. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether, in the event of it becoming necessary to move to fix a time limit to the discussion of the Licensing Bill in Committee, he will favourably consider the procedure suggested in a Motion on to-day's Paper for a new Standing Order to secure priority, in such cases, for Amendments raising the more important issues.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. ASQUITH,) Fifeshire, E.
My hon. friend's suggestion shall be carefully considered.
