§ Sir D. MACLEAN
Can the Leader of the House say what business it is proposed to take to-day and on Thursday?
§ 4.0 P.M.
§ Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)
To-day we hope to get the first three Orders—Women, Young Persons,' and Children (Employment) Bill. Report; Criminal Injuries (Ireland) 932 Bill, Report; and Gold and Silver (Export, Control, etc.) Bill, Second Reading—and also, if time permits, Numbers 5 and 6—Isle of Man (Customs) Bill, Second Reading: and Public Works Loans Bill, Second Reading. To-morrow we shall take the Second Reading of the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill and the subsequent stages of the Bills taken to-day. On Wednesday we shall take the Civil Service Supplementary Estimates With regard to Thursday, we had proposed, provisionally, that we should have the Financial Debate, but it is necessary to get the Roads Bill through at once, and we therefore propose to take that measure on Thursday. In that case, we propose to have the financial discussion next week, and I venture to hope that those who are impugning the financial policy of the Government so loudly outside will take the opportunity of putting a Motion on the Paper.
Do we understand that it is the intention to carry the Roads Bill through all its stages before Christmas?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
We hope so, Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend does not understand the Bill. I understand that it is merely an administrative Bill to enable the decision come to on the Budget to be carried into effect.
