HC Deb 03 April 1911 vol 23 cc1804-5

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that in order to assimilate an all-night sitting to a normal sitting it is considered advisable to deduct eight hours out of eleven occupied beyond the regular limit of a Parliamentary day, he will make arrangements to avoid the recurrence of such conditions?


I cannot admit the assumption which underlies the hon. Member's question. The deduction which for the purposes of the argument I made the other day was, as I stated at the time, one of extravagant generosity.
