§ MR. HOPWOOD
asked, If it was the intention of the Government to proceed with the Criminal Law Amendment Bill that night?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH)
No, we cannot proceed with that tonight. It had been our intention to take the Medical Relief Bill immediately after Supply, and to report Progress early for the purpose; but, as the House is no doubt aware, we have been disappointed in that intention by what passed during the early hours of this morning, and it cannot be taken till Thursday. I stated yesterday that it was not our intention to take the Criminal Law Amendment Bill tonight.
§ MR. JAMES STUART
asked what day the Criminal Law Amendment Bill was likely to come on; and on what day the Government Amendments were likely to be placed on the Paper?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
I am afraid I cannot answer the first Question. The Amendments will be placed on the Paper in ample time to allow them to be considered by the House.
