HC Deb 16 July 1920 vol 131 cc2766-7

(by Private Notice) asked the Patronage Secretary whether the Government will consent to give a day for the discussion of Irish affairs by putting down the Irish Estimates, for, say, the salary of the Chief Secretary, for some day next week?

Lord EDMUND TALBOT (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

The Government quite recognise the reasonableness of the request of the hon. Gentleman. The House knows that the whole of Thursday next has been allocated for the Post Office Vote. Right hon. and hon. Gentlemen opposite asked for that Vote, but they have also expressed their wish to fall in with the desire of the hon. Gentleman and his friends, and it has, therefore, been arranged that the Chief Secretary's salary shall be put down as the first order on Thursday, and the Post Office Vote as the second Order, on the understanding that the discussion on the Irish Vote shall be terminated before dinner.

Motion made, and Question put, "That the Proceedings on the Finance Bill be not interrupted this day at Five or half-past Five of the Clock."— [Mr. Bonar Law.]

The House divided: Ayes, 71; Noes, 31.
