Conservative (1867-1942)

We should have some more definite reasons given. There :s no statement of fact in the petition, but merely a statement of opinion. I would suggest to the right hon. gentleman that we should have some more decided mode of procedure in these matters, and perhaps it would be well to amend the orders of the House so as to provide that any petition presented after the usual time must set forth certain facts showing why it should be received.
