Excerpt from The Nineteenth Century and After, Vol. 60: A Monthly Review; July-December, 1906 IT is reasonable to assume that the Government will adopt in the main the recommendations of the Select Committee which they have appointed to consider the question of procedure in the House of Commons. That Committee has already issued two reports, the latter Of which contains a recommendation which, if adopted, will add very considerably to the responsibility of the House Of Lords namely, the pr0posal to multiply the Standing Committees, and to reverse the present practice under which Bills are not referred to such Committees except by the express order of the House. Hence forward, Bills upon passing second reading will be sent before one or other of the Standing Committees which are to be set up, except Money Bills and such other Bills as the House - that is, practically the Government Of the day - may Specially reserve for consideration in Committee Of the whole House. This is a long step in the wake of the French Chamber of Deputies, where Bills are dismissed by the Official Renvoyez au bureau, ' and are seen no more in the Chamber until they have passed through the mill Of Committee.
