HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 cc1825-6

"That a Supplementary sum, not exceeding £295,000, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1927, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Post Office, including Telegraphs and Telephones."

Resolution read a Second time.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."


Is this Resolution to go through without any explanation from the Government Bench? Are we going to vote money without any statement from the Government as to why they want it?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir William Mitchell-Thomson)

I did not think the House, which suffered me for more than an hour yesterday, would require any further explanation to-night.


We can suffer it again to-night.

The remaining Government Orders were read, and postponed.

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to the Order of the House of 27th September, proposed the Question, "That this House do now adjourn."

Adjourned accordingly at Twelve Minutes before Eleven o'Clock.
