HC Deb 09 June 1915 vol 72 cc335-6

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That a sum, not exceeding £14,630, be granted to His Majesty, to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1916, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Local Government Board for Scotland." [NOTE.—£10,000 has been voted on account.]


I wish to make a suggestion to my right hon. Friend in view of another matter which I was going to raise to-day which is interesting to Scottish Members in reference to the rating of sewers. I have been with the Treasury this afternoon while this Debate was going on, and it is not convenient, for reasons which I need not state at the moment, to raise this question on the Adjournment. But I have been assured by the Treasury that if an arrangement cannot be made with the Treasury it may be necessary to raise it on the Local Government Board Vote. Seeing that my right hon. Friend has withdrawn the Vote for the Board of Agriculture as a matter of convenience, perhaps he would withdraw this Vote also. None of us want to discuss this to-night, and we will not want to discuss it again if an arrangement is made, but we desire to keep the opportunity open.


indicated assent.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.


Will there be an opportunity of discussing this when—


The hon. and learned Member is not entitled to intervene now.
