§ MR. C. J. DARLING
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps the Government intend to take to give effect to the Resolution passed on Friday last by this House, that a reasonable allowance should forthwith be granted to all Members of Parliament?
§ SIR W. HARCOURT
I have already stated more than once that in my opinion this can only be accomplished by a Bill, and the Government, when they consider it practicable, will introduce a Bill on the subject.
§ MR. DARLING
Arising out of that answer, I should desire to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, seeing that the Resolution which was come to, that a reasonable allowance should forthwith be granted to all Members of Parliament was supported by the Government, and seeing that that includes the Members of the House of Lords, whether the right hon. Gentleman will, as there is time in the House of Lords for the introduction of a Bill, have a Bill introduced there?
§ [No answer was given].
