HC Deb 15 December 1919 vol 123 cc48-51

May I ask the Leader of the House what business it is proposed to take during the remaining days of this week, and what business it is proposed to take to-night under the Notice of Motion for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule, standing in the name of the right hon. Gentleman?


We propose to-day to take the first five Orders—Supply Committee, Supply Report, Ways and Means Committee, Anglo-Persian Oil Company (Acquisition of Capital) Bill, Committee, and the Lords Amendments to the Unemployment Benefit Bill.

On the assumption that the outstanding Estimates be completed to-day, tomorrow we shall take the Appropriation Bill

On Wednesday and Thursday the Lords Amendments, whatever they may be, which come back to this House. On Wednesday we also hope to take the Report stage of the War Emergency Bill.

It will probably be necessary to sit on Friday for the Lords Amendments to Bills which may not reach us in time to be taken on Thursday.


When will the Lords Amendments to the Aliens Bill be taken?


I cannot say; they have not come down to this House.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Proceedings on Government Business be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."— [Mr. Boner Law]

The House divided: Ayes, 193; Noes, 31.
