HC Deb 06 March 1922 vol 151 cc868-71

(by Private Notice) asked the Leader of the House whether there is any change in the Government business for this week?


Yes. We propose to ask the House to conclude the Committee stage of the Irish Bill to-night, but think that it would not be fair to invite the House to proceed with the Report stage the next day. We propose, therefore, to take to-morrow the Supplementary Estimate for Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office) and the Report stages of other Votes on the Paper.

We shall proceed with the Report stage and Third Reading of the Irish Free State (Agreement) Bill on Wednesday.

If, as I hope, those stages be completed on that date, we shall take the Middle Eastern Services Supplementary Estimate on Thursday and Army Supplementary Estimates and other Supplementary Estimates, if there be time for them, on Friday.


Will the Middle East Supplementary Estimate include the subjects of Iraq, Palestine, and other matters?


I think that all those are included. I would like to inquire.


Are the promised Statement and Debate on Egypt to be put off until next week?


I think it was intended that we should have them on the Report of the Civil Service Vote on Account. That would be to-morrow week.

Motion made, and Question put, That the Proceedings on the Irish Free State (Agreement) 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, 210; Noes, 72.
