§ MR. LEWIS
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, to enable Members to follow closely the proceedings of the House, and particularly to spare them the trouble of asking and Ministers of replying to Questions which have already been asked and answered, he will, from the beginning of next Session, cause an index of the Report of the Votes and Proceedings of the House, including Questions, to be kept in the Library or some other convenient place in the precincts of the House, and entered up day by day?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
I believe there is an index to the Votes and Proceedings of this House. I understand, however, that the Question is put on the paper principally in the interest of having an index to Questions and Answers given in this House day by day. I am afraid there is no machinery by which such a result could be obtained, neither do I know how it could be contrived.
