1.Could I have a few moments of your time while I research on the issue?
2.Could you give me few minutes while I research on the issue?
The first part of the sentence is right in both 1 and 2 (except for the missing 'a'), but has different meanings:
- In 1, the request is for something like an interview - the person asked is going to have to be involved in the research.
- In 2, the request is for time for outside research, in which the person asked won't be involved.
