HC Deb 10 June 1920 vol 130 cc613-7

Can the Prime Minister inform us what business it is proposed to take next week, and, in particular, what are the Orders the Government hope to take to-night?


To-night we go as far as we can with the Orders on the Paper in the order they are on the Paper. How far we go will depend upon the indulgence of the House.

Monday and Tuesday: Government of Ireland Bill, except that part of Tuesday will be reserved for the Committee stage of the Finance Resolution of the Agriculture Bill.

Wednesday: This will be announced later.

Thursday: Supply—League of Nations Vote.

Colonel ASHLEY

May I ask whether the Government of Ireland Bill will be the first Order on Tuesday, or will it come after the Committee stage of the Agriculture Bill?


It has been decided, I understand, that it shall be taken second.


In view of the statement that the Licensing Bill is going to be passed through all its stages this Session, may I ask if it is intended that we shall sit continuously till Christmas?


Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Committee stage of the Finance Bill will be taken?


Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us whether the Suspensory (New) Clause of the First Lord of the Admiralty will be on the Paper before Monday?


My right hon. Friend hopes it will be on the Paper by Monday.


Do we understand that Wednesday is likely to be reserved for the Amritsar discussion?


It is possible it will be kept open for that purpose.


May I take it that Wednesday will possibly be kept open for the general discussion?


It is being kept open, in the hope that the Amritsar matter may be taken then.

Captain W. BENN

Can the right hon. Gentleman give us an assurance that the Overseas Trade (Credits and Insurance) Bill will not be taken to-night—the sixth Order?


If there be any general desire not to take it. [HON. MEMBERS: "No, no!"]

Motion made, and Question put, "That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. Bonar Law.]

The House divided: Ayes, 247; Noes, 34.
