§ Mr. SAMUEL ROBERTS
asked when notice of the guillotine Resolutions for the Budget 1909–10 will be given?
§ Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
I desire to make an appeal to the Prime Minister arising out of his answer to a question and another answer given by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to-day. I understand that the Prime Minister said that the guillotine Resolutions on the Budget would only be put upon the Table or handed in to-morrow night. They are obviously matters of very great importance, which Members ought to have an opportunity of considering, and I would appeal to him to put them on the Paper to-night, so that we may have a little more time, and not see them only for the first time on Friday morning, when we have to discuss them on Monday.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am not without hope that we may be able to put them on the Table to-night, but I will do my best.
