HC Deb 02 July 1919 vol 117 c971

Before my right hon. Friend moves the Resolution on the Paper with regard to taking time after eleven o'clock to-night, will he say whether he has considered the great feeling throughout this House that the Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill should be very fully and properly debated here, as so many Members have not had an opportunity of debating it in Committee?


There is really no intention whatever of having a late sitting. I am moving this Motion simply in order that the Debate may not be interrupted if a particular Amendment be under discussion and can be disposed of shortly.

Ordered, That the Proceedings on the Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Bonar Law.]
