§ MR. SCHREIBER
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, considering the great importance of the Affirmation Bill, he will arrange that its Second Reading be not taken until the First Lord of the Treasury is able to attend in his place in Parliament?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
My right hon. Friend will, I hope, be in his place in the House in the course of next week, and I do not think that there is any probability of the second reading of the Affirmation Bill being taken before then.
