HC Deb 19 June 1918 vol 107 c474

Committee to consider of authorising the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of such further Expenses as the Minister of Labour may be authorised to incur under any Act of the present Session to amend the Trade Boards Act, 1909 (King's Recommendation signified)—To-morrow.—Lord E. Talbot.]

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 Motion for the Select Committee to consider the Report of Mr. Justice Atkin's Committee, my hon. Friend the Member for North Somerset raised a question about it, and I also asked a question upon a previous occasion. I presume the Patronage Secretary will be able to tell us now where we can find a copy of this mysterious document, and will he also say that we shall at least have it in our hands one day before he moves his Resolution?

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

Yes. I am postponing the moving of my Resolution for that purpose, and I understand that the document is now being printed.


May I ask the Noble Lord why no National Member is to be put upon this Committee? I think it ought—


The proper time to raise that question will be when the Resolution is moved.

Question put, and agreed to.

Adjourned accordingly at Fifteen minutes after Ten o'clock.
