HC Deb 23 October 1919 vol 120 cc177-8

I beg to ask the Leader of the House what business it is proposed to take next week, and if the House sit to-morrow (Friday) what is the business to be considered?


We propose that the House should sit to-morrow and take the concluding stages of the Aliens Restriction Bill, including the Third Reading, and other Orders on the Paper.

Upon Monday we propose to take the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Bill, the Superannuation (Prison Officers) Bill, Second Reading, and some other Orders.

On Tuesday next the War Emergency Laws (Continuance) Bill, and

Upon Wednesday—as I understand it is agreeable to all sections of the House—we propose to take the discussion on the financial position of the country. The House will probably regard it as desirable —and I think it is desirable—to have two days for the Debate. Therefore, I am leaving Thursday free, should the House so desire.
