HC Deb 23 June 1921 vol 143 cc1558-61

May I ask the Leader of the House what is the business for next week and what is the special urgency for the Motion standing in his name to suspend the Eleven o'clock Rule to-night, in view of the very late hours the House has been already called upon to sit?


The business which we propose to take next week is as follows:

On Monday, the Unemployment Insurance Bill, Report and Third Reading; the Housing (Scotland—No. 2) Bill, continuation of the Debate on the Bill, as amended in Standing Committee; the Greenwich Hospital Bill; and the Indian Divorces (Validity) Bill, Committee and Third Reading.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we propose to take the Safeguarding of Industries Bill, as the first and second days allotted to the Committee Stage.

On Thursday, the Colonial Office Vote, in pursuance of the arrangement come to.

On Friday, the Emergency Powers Regulations and the discussion on the Washington Convention.

As regards to-night, I hope that it may not be necessary to sit after 11 o'clock, but it is absolutely necessary that we should take the Unclassified Services, Railway and Canal (War) Agreement Liquidation Vote, in order that the Government may be able to meet its liabilities under the Railway Agreement.

Captain W. BENN

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the adjourned De-

bate on the setting up of the Estimates Committee will be taken?


I put the Motion down again for Monday, when it was adjourned last night. Monday's programme is a non-contentious one, and I hope that there will be time to resume the Debate on that day.

Lieut.-Colonel J. WARD

Before the right hon. Gentleman puts it down, will he get some kind of agreement with those who are opposed to it, so that they will not talk it out again?

Motion made, and Question put, That the Proceedings of the Committee of Supply be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings or the House), notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 15."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]

The House divided: Ayes, 283; Noes, 53.
