Henry Lumley Drayton

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

What we used to do, and what my hon. friend always took objection to, was to vote one-sixth, full right being reserved to object, later on, to any estimates that had not already been passed. We have to-day some important matters that, I think, should not lose their right of way for the purpose of concurring in everything that has been voted. I am perfectly willing to consent to all that we thought would be done, namely, that the government should have the necessary interim supply, and we consent to a resolution now going through for one-sixth, the usual supply, as interim supply, without prejudice to the opposition or anybody else who may wish to object to any individual item.
