Thomas Wilson Crothers (Minister of Labour)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CEOTHEES:

I would like to suggest to my hon. friend a slight amendment to this motion. I would like him to add after the word ' Government ' in the second line, the words, ' including those of their private secretaries '; and that the first four words of the third line ' their advent, to power ' be stricken out, and the words ' January 1, 1897 ' be inserted in lieu thereof; and after the word * ministers ' in the fifth line that the words ' and by their private secretaries ' be added.
