§ Sir DONALD MACLEAN
May I ask the Leader of the House what business it is proposed to take on Thursday?
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Can the right hon. Gentleman say if the Agriculture and Fisheries (Councils, etc.) Bill is not reached to-day, when it is proposed to take it, and will he, in view of its importance, put it down as first Order?
§ Mr. BILLING
Is it proposed to take the Third Reading of the Aliens Restriction Bill to-night, in the event of the Report stage being concluded by eight o'clock?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
With regard to the first question (Mr. Lambert's), we do recognise the importance of the Agriculture and Fisheries (Councils, etc.) Bill. I cannot say anything definite as to when we shall take it, but we shall try to get 1320 a suitable opportunity. As to the second question (Mr. Billing's), I hope that may be so, but my hopes have often been disappointed.
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider whether the House should have the opportunity of seeing this Bill in its final printed form before we commit ourselves irrevocably?
