HC Deb 23 July 1918 vol 108 cc1775-6

Committee to consider of authorising the remission of certain debts in pursuance of any Act of the Present Session relating to Local Loans—(King's Recommendation signified)—To-morrow.—[Mr. Baldwin.]

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to the Order of the House of the 13th February, proposed the Question, "That this House do now adjourn."


With regard to the rest of the Orders on the Paper, I beg to ask whether there is any intention to take the Juries Bill before the Recess? I presume when it is taken that the Minister in charge of the Bill will come down in good health and good temper. I would like to ask whether, in view of the fact that it is very controversial, and cannot be passed through both Houses before the Adjournment, we shall have some assurance that it will not be taken before the holidays?

Lord E. TALBOT (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

No, Sir; it is intended to take that Bill before the holidays.


What day?

Question put, and agreed to.

Adjourned accordingly at Seventeen minutes after Ten o'clock.
