§ Mr. BYLES
asked the Prime Minister whether the Debate on Vote 8 [Shipbuilding, Repairs, Maintenance, etc.], Navy Estimates, is necessarily restricted to one day; and, if only one day can be given, will he move the suspension of the Eleven o'clock Rule, in order that greater opportunities may be given to Members to criticise the naval policy of the Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
I am afraid it is impossible to give an extra day at this period of the Session, and I have received no general indication of a desire to extend the period of the Debate.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
So far as this Front Bench is concerned my hon. Friends will exercise a self-denying ordinance.
§ Mr. DILLON
I hope the right hon. Gentleman will be able to give us an assurance that we will be able to secure a Division.
