§ Mr. FORSTER
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, in the absence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, three questions with reference to the Insurance Bill: First, when the Chancellor proposes to circulate the statement which he promised showing the financial effects of the Amendments carried in Committee. In the second place, when he will put upon the Paper the Amendments proposed for the Report stage, and which must amount to one or two hundred, I should think; and in the third place, when he will announce the names of the Insurance Commissioners? The House will realise the urgency of the matter when I remind them that unless the Amendments are put on the Paper to-morrow we shall begin the Report stage on Tuesday without having had any notice of the Amendments at all.
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
As to the putting down of Government Amendments I am glad to be able to say that a large number of them will be put down tomorrow—a hundred or two. With regard to the financial effect of the Amendments carried in Committee, I only received notice of that question shortly before eleven o'clock, and I have not had an opportunity of seeing the actuaries, but I believe they have completed their report on that subject, although I have not seen it. With regard to the names of the Insurance Commissioners, I have not had an opportunity of seeing the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and it is not a question which I can answer without consulting him.
§ Adjourned accordingly at Eight minutes before Twelve o'clock.
