§ Mr. ARTHUR LEE
I desire to ask the Prime Minister a question, of which I have given him private notice, namely, whether there is any foundation for the statements in the Press that the Government has decided not to proceed this Session with its scheme for the payment of Members; if not, can he say when, and in what form, the scheme will be introduced?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
There is no foundation for the statements to which the hon. Gentleman refers, and I am not yet in a position to give the particulars for which he asks in the last part of his question.
