§ Bill considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Clauses 1 to 4, inclusive, agreed to.
§ DR. CLARK (Caithness)
said, he thought the Government should give them some information upon several points in this Bill. The measure was introduced at a very late hour one night, and hon. Members had no opportunity of hearing its provisions discussed. The Government should give their reasons for the Bill, and how they intended to spend the £10,000.000 which they asked for.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
said, that if he were to respond to the invitation of the hon. Member, the Chairman would very soon call him to Order. He should be very happy to explain anything in the clauses as they came on; but, of course, he could not give a general statement as to the objects of the Bill.
