§ Sir H. CROFT
I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely, "the landing in this country of goods prepared by convict labour, which is an infringement of the Customs Consolidation Act, 1872."
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
On a point of Order. May I submit that this Motion does not come within the Standing Order?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I do not see how I can allow the hon. and gallant Member to raise this question as a definite matter of urgent public importance, because, according to the answer given by the
§ Chancellor of the Exchequer, the statement that he made is not a fact. It appears to be necessary to convince the Commissioners that the Act of Parliament has been broken. If the hon. and gallant Member has evidence to satisfy the Commissioners that these imports do not conform with the law, then it will be open to him to raise the matter.
