HC Deb 06 March 1925 vol 181 cc806-7

In the absence of the Prime Minister, I wish to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the Resolution on the Paper this morning, in my name and in the names of certain of my colleagues, calling attention to the proceedings of yesterday, in which the action of the Chairman is involved, and whether it is the Government's intention to give us an early date for the discussion of that Resolution?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)

Yes, Sir, I have seen the Resolution which has been placed upon the Paper. It is obvious that a Motion of this character cannot remain on the Order Paper of the House without being disposed of in one way or another as quickly as possible. The Prime Minister will be here in a very short time, and I will make it my duty to see that all the circumstances are fully represented to him. I have no doubt that if the right. hon. Gentleman repeats his question on Monday the Government will be in a position to give him an answer.


I suppose there would be no opportunity of doing it to-night, or during this clay's Sitting? There is no Adjournment. Motion to-day.


There is no Adjournment Motion on Fridays.


We will see about
