HC Deb 07 September 1909 vol 10 c1093
Mr. PATRICK O'BRIEN (for Mr. John Redmond)

asked whether adequate time will be afforded for the discussion of the Motion for setting up a Committee on Procedure, of which notice has been given on behalf of the Government?


The Committee was proposed in response to an appeal from hon. Members opposite to deal not with procedure generally, but with one of its special aspects. The Amendments which have been put down would introduce into the discussion elements of complication and controversy, and in the circumstances the Motion will not be persisted in this Session.
