§ MR. BOULNOIS (Marylebone, E.)
May I ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can explain why the Royal Standard was not hoisted on the Victoria Tower yesterday in honour of the Royal Wedding?
§ MR. THEOBALD (Essex, Romford)
Before the question is answered, may I ask another—namely, whether the right hon. Gentleman did not consider the hoisting of the Royal Standard a superfluous manifestation, taking into consideration the proceedings in this House and the narrow squeak the Government had last night?
§ MR. W. E. GLADSTONE
That is a matter not within the cognisance of my office; but if any hon. Member chooses to give notice of a question on the subject I shall be glad to obtain information for him.
