HC Deb 17 February 1916 vol 80 c257

Can the Prime Minister give the House any information as to the course of business next week?


If the Debate on the Address is concluded to-night, as I hope, I shall move the Vote of Credit on Monday. On Tuesday we shall take the Motion on the Paper in regard to business of the House and the Report of the Vote of Credit. On Wednesday we shall take the Second Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill. On Thursday the Committee stage of the Consolidated Fund Bill, and perhaps the Second Reading of some Departmental Bills.

Resolved, "That this House, at its rising this day, do adjourn until Monday next."—[The Prime Minister.]

Ordered, "That the Proceedings on the King's Speech (Motion for an Address), if under discussion at Eleven o'clock this night, be not interrupted under the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]
