§ 59. Major TRYON
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government will undertake to submit for the approval of the House of Commons any proposals, they may have for further subsidies before committing themselves to any extension of this principle?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
As my lion. Friend knows, the Government have put an end to some of the subsidies given in consequence of the War, and are anxious at the earliest possible moment to end them all. It would not, however, be possible, without a careful definition of the term subsidy, to give the undertaking in the form asked for.
