HC Deb 11 June 1918 vol 106 c2041

May I ask the Leader of the House whether he intends to move Order No. 1—[Emigration (Expenses); Report thereupon]? There is sure to be some discussion upon it; and, in view of the defeat of the Government on this Bill in Grand Committee, and Progress having been reported, may we not go on to Order No. 2—[Education Bill; Committee]—and have the full time of the House for the Education Bill?


No; it is necessary to get this Resolution. I do not myself intend to move it. I was not aware of the tragic news given by the hon. Member, but I do not attach the same importance to it as he apparently does.


Is it not a serious and important matter? Will not the Government possibly resign on it?

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