HC Deb 13 January 1916 vol 77 c1789

May I ask the Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury whether he hopes to allow us two days for the Committee stage of the Military Service (No. 2) Bill next week, and whether in any case he will arrange the business so that we do not have to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule?

Mr. GULLAND (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

The hon. Member had better wait and see what progress we make on Monday. At any rate on Monday the Eleven o'Clock Rule will not be suspended.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there is a general desire in all parts of the House that no time should be lost in passing the Bill?


Is the hon. Gentleman also aware that those who are opposed to the principle of the Bill have no desire to obstruct its passage?


Is he also aware that the Prime Minister promised that facilities should be given for reasonable and for a full discussion?
