§ Mr. T. P. O'CONNOR
(by Private Notice) asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury if he has any information in regard to the action of the United States Senate?
It is not usual to allow questions after Bills have been presented, but under the circumstances I will raise no objection now.
§ Lord E. TALBOT (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)
We understand that the proceedings have not gone through Congress yet in America. The Senate has passed it, but, I think, not the other House, and we are given to understand that it is not likely to pass until Saturday.
§ Mr. O'CONNOR
I assume that when the decision of the American Legislature is known, the Government will take an opportunity of making a statement and a Motion to the House? It must be after Easter now, of course.
