HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 cc1300-1

May I ask the Leader of the House for a statement of the business which he intends to take next week?


Assuming, as I hope I may assume, that the House will not think it necessary to insist upon debating the industrial situation to-day, then I would propose on Monday to put down as first Order, to be taken if so desired, the adjourned Debate on the reply to His Majesty's Message to the House. If time permits, we should go on with the Housing Bill and other Orders on the Paper.

On Tuesday we propose to take Supply —Vote for the Ministry of Agriculture.

On Wednesday the Treaty of Peace (Hungary) Bill, and the Revenue Bill.

On Thursday Supply—Vote for the Ministry of Health.

I must reserve, however, the right to alter the order of business should it be necessary to take Supplementary Estimates.

Ordered, "That the Proceedings in Committee on Public Health (Tuberculosis) [Expenses] be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House), and may, notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 15, be considered before Eleven o'clock."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]
