(Per Press Association—Copyright).
LONDON, February 23
The Parliamentary correspondent of the "Dairy 'News" declares that the House of Lords' plan to - thwart the Government does not consist of the rejection of the Army Annual Bill, but a series of attacks made to discredit the Government on the" grounds of corruption, including the 'Marconi inI vestments, traffic in honours, and Sir Stuart Samuel'jS;, case. A resolution* concerning Lord /Murray of Elibank will be followed to-day by Lord Selborne's motion condemning contributions to.the party's funds as influencing the bestowal of honours. t Mr Hall, Labour member for Nornianton, asked in th© House of Commons to-day whether the Premier would appoint a Select Committee to inquire into the sources and expenditure of political funds, s and report what legis-' lation was desirable to prevent corruption. ■"'■.■ ' ■! . ' Lord Charnv.ood made a similar re-' quest in the House of Lords in favour of a Royal Commission. , '
