HC Deb 06 April 1922 vol 152 cc2437-9

May I ask the Leader of the House what is the business for next week?


On Monday, we propose to put down Supply, Ministry of Labour Vote. That will be an Allotted day.

On Tuesday, we also propose to take Supply, but that will not be an Allotted day. We will put down the Office of Works Vote, but the Government Business ceases at 8.15, for a private Member's Motion.

On Wednesday, we propose that the House—I believe this will be for the general convenience of the House— should meet at 11 o'clock, and we will take the Motion for the Adjournment for the Easter Recess.


The right hon. Gentleman said there was private business down for Tuesday evening. Is there not also a private Bill on Monday evening at 8.15?


I did not say there was private business, but that there was a private Member's Motion down for Tuesday evening, and that we could not therefore make it an Allotted Supply day, but we shall give all that part of Tuesday which belongs to the Government, up to

8.15, for Supply, in spite of the fact that it will not count as an Allotted day. I think there is a Railway Bill put down for Monday evening.


Does that not really involve the fact that only a very few hours on Monday afternoon can be allotted to the Ministry of Labour Vote?


I have no control over the times and seasons at which Private Bills are put down. That is wholly beyond the control of the Government, and often very inconvenient.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Irish Indemnity Bill will be taken?


No, I cannot say that, but there will not be any more legislation, after this week, until after the Easter Recess.

Ordered, That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]

Motion made, and Question put, That the Proceedings on the Unemployment Insurance Bill be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]

The House divided: Ayes, 220; Noes, 78.
