§ Sir F. BANBURY
(by Private Notice)asked the Leader of the House how far he proposes to proceed with the business of Supply to-night, and whether the House will have an opportunity of listening in the Debate to the explanation of the Home Secretary in regard to the cases of Sir Basil Thomson and Sir Joseph Byrne?
As regards the business to-night, we propose to take the Committee stage of all the Supplementary Estimates. As regards the other question, my right hon. Friend has given me no notice of his intention to raise it, and I should be glad if he would give me notice in order that I might consult my right hon. Friend and hear what he proposes.
§ Lieut.-Colonel CROFT
On a point of Order. In view of the fact that you have not allowed me to ask a question of which I have given private notice with regard to the announcement in the Press that the Home Secretary was going to make an early statement, may I ask you if you have any knowledge when that statement will be made?
§ Sir D. MACLEAN
If the Committee stage on the Supplementary Estimates be finished before 10 or 9.30 to-night, what other business do the Government propose to take? Are there any Lords Amendments to be taken?
In that case, we propose to take any Amendments which may come down from the other place on the Unemployed Workers' Dependants (Temporary Provision) Bill.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Will the House have an opportunity of discussing the statement to be made by the Home Secretary, as announced in the Press to-day?
