HC Deb 03 March 1910 vol 14 cc970-1

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the membership of the House now included seven ministers of religion, he would consider the desirableness of inviting one or other of those honourable and reverend gentlemen to officiate at prayers, and thus save the salary of the present chaplain?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

I was not aware of the fact which my hon. Friend brings to my notice, and I am disposed to doubt whether his suggestion would turn out in practice to be a well-considered form of economy.
