Parliamentary. I In the Honse of Commons on Wednesday an assurance was given by Mr Balfour that -the Aliens Bill would bo introduced during the week in which the adjournment for the Easter recess is to take place. The vote of £10,101,000 for Army pay was agreed to. There had previously been defeated, by a majority of thirty-one, a motion for the reduction of the vote, pro- posed by Mr MacCrae, with the view of calling attention to the Government pro- posals with reference to the Auxiliary forces. Speaking on this amendment Mr Balfour repudiated the idea that, towards the Volun- teer force the Government was inclined to adopt an unsympathetic or over-critical at- titude, and, later, Mr Arnold-Forater gave a detailed statement of the advantages which it was intended to concede to the Yolunteers. On Thursday, in the House of Commons, in reply to questions relative to the defeat of Mr Loder, at Brighton, said it was usual that the Junior Lord of the Treasury should be a member of the House, although there was no constitutional reason why it should be so. Mr Gladstone was Secretary 'for the for the Colonies for six or seven months while out of the House and unable to obtain a seat in it, he having been defeated on accepting office. Mr Lloyd George asked whether Mr Balfour was still of opinion that his Ministry continued to retain the ceufidence of the country- In reply, jIr Balfour stated that the opinion of the country could only be judged at a general election.
