HC Deb 08 May 1916 vol 82 cc431-2

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to the Order of the House of the 22nd February, proposed the Question, "That this House do now adjourn."


May I ask the Patronage Secretary, with regard to to-morrow's business, is it the intention of the Government to move the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule? Can he also say if it is the intention of the Government to give a day between the Committee stage and the Report stage of the Military Service Bill? On the Report stage there is, following the Committee stage, opportunity for further amendment. Many Amendments are not put down for the Committee stage in order not to overweight it. These may reasonably be taken on Report. A day between is, therefore, valuable.

Mr. GULLAND (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

In regard to the first question of my hon. Friend, we will move to-morrow to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule. As to the second question, I am sorry I cannot make any promise.

Question put, and agreed to.

Adjourned accordingly at Three minutes after Eleven o'clock.
