HC Deb 27 June 1917 vol 95 c419

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any change is contemplated in the arrangement of business for the remainder of this week?


My right hon. Friend informs me that he thinks it would be more convenient not to go beyond Clause 14 of the Representation of the People Bill this week. He hopes to get that Clause to-day, so that we have made a change in the business, and will take to-morrow the Munitions Vote, instead of on Friday. On Friday, if Clause 14 has not been reached, that will be the first order. If it is passed to-day, we shall take on Friday the Lords Amendments to the Courts (Emergency Powers) Bill, and the Trade Union (Amalgamation) Bill; and we shall also take the War Pensions (Transfer of Powers) Bill.

Ordered, "That the Proceedings on the Representation of the People Bill, if under discussion at Eleven o'clock this night, be not interrupted under the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Bonar Law.]
