HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 cc858-9

asked the Prime Minister whether he will recommend to the House such alterations or additions to the Standing Orders as will permit an Official Report of the proceedings of Standing Committee B to be circulated daily to all Members of the House whilst the said Committee is engaged in discussing Part II. of the National Insurance Bill?

Viscount WOLMER

asked what arrangements, if any, are to be made for officially reporting verbatim proceedings in Standing Committee on Part II. of the National Insurance Bill?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

Having regard to the wholly exceptional circumstances of this Bill, we think that the normal, and, as I believe, the convenient procedure of the Standing Committees should be so far varied as that a full daily Official Report shall be prepared and circulated.

Viscount WOLMER

Will that Official Report be circulated in connection with the OFFICIAL REPORT, so that they shall both come under the same index?


We will see about that.
