I beg to move, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."

I think it will be generally agreed that we have carried out our bargain Having carried out our side of the bargain, and since a large number of Members have come into the Committee and are not aware of the strong feeling that exists among Lancashire Members to enable them to raise their Lancashire grievances in the cotton industry, I wonder whether the Home Secretary will reconsider the decision that I know was given hastily and without due regard to all the facts.


The argument which I used a very short time ago to a similar Motion by the same right hon. Gentleman is even more applicable now.


I am extremely sorry. I will be content with showing my feelings by going into the Division Lobby.


I am delighted that upon this occasion I shall have the opportunity of making a few observations. The right hon. Gentleman has moved to report Progress. I had intended to support the Government when a previous Motion was made, my reason being that the hour at which the Motion was made was 3 o'clock, a time at which the trains were not running for Members to go home. But the situation is now changed. The sun is now high in the heavens.


I wish you were!


I hope the Home Secretary will not keep us here indefinitely as he is keeping the interned in Ireland. I am concerned, like the Members who represent Lancashire constituencies, in a Bill which is to be dealt with at the sitting of the House to-day. A continuance of this sitting would prejudice a sitting of high Imperial importance. I use both adjectives advisedly, because we all know the peril in which the cotton industry stands; we know the possibility of rescuing it, and we can only have that Measure if the House sits to-day at the usual time. I know the President of the Board of Trade is in the precincts of the House, and I understand the Government are ready to give facilities to the Bill if it passes its Second Reading at this day's sitting. In these circumstances, I can make this appeal without any suggestion on the part of any one in the House that I have been in any way contributing to the undue prolongation of the proceedings. It is always wise, when a Government is in the heyday of its power, when it has unbroken legions at its command, to show a reasonable, moderate and conciliatory spirit to an Opposition no matter how insignificant it may be. [HON. MEMBERS: "Withdraw"] I am sorry if my hon. Friends on these Benches think I am applying the term to them. They are anything but a weak Opposition; they are too aggressive. I merely quote this as a warning to the Government. If these things be done in the green tree what will be done in the dry? [An HON. MEMBER "You are up a gum tree!"] I am sure these things appeal to the Patronage Secretary, who I am sorry to say, has just gone out of the House, but I wish to say a few words of sympathy to his genial deputy. We all appreciate the hard and toilsome road of a Whip in ordinary times but when a misadventure occurs and he is exposed to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune then it is that the sympathetic heart goes out to him. I have been doing all I could to help him and his colleagues since that deplorable incident and I think he and his colleagues might make some recognition of that. We do not want to divide. We have had enough of it. Even the greatest glutton for divisions must be satisfied. We want to get away now. My hon. Friend the Member for Ealing (Sir H. Nield), who comes in with his shining morning face, will be with me in that. We like his associations intermittent though they be.


I think there is no connection between the hon. and learned Member for Ealing and the Motion to report Progress.


I had not just reached that point. I feel that in view of my hon. and learned Friend's recent record, he might help us in the Lobby. There are not so many others to whom that appeal could be made. I also thought Lancashire might be with us, but Lancashire has deserted.


Lancashire knows its friends.


There are also Members in the shade. As the sun has now responded to my appeal, surely the Government will do likewise and respond to the influences of nature Let it be to them an omen of the line they should take at the present time. It is a great opportunity. The House can now rise from its labours in the cheeriest and happiest frame of mind, conscious of a night of hard work well done, long discussion reasonably and moderately maintained, decisions carefully taken and labours performed in the same spirit and in such a way as to bring the utmost gratification and satisfaction to the Government.


I have no intention of saying anything provocative. I just want to urge this view on the Government. There are still to my knowledge two really important Amendments to this Bill. There is one in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) which raises a very important issue connected with the propriety of Field General Courts-Martial. There is really a great amount of ground to be covered on both questions, to say nothing of the point which is being put by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) in connection with the Schedule to the Bill. If this matter is to be properly debated, and if we are to get, as I hope we shall, a fruitful result, I earnestly urge upon the Government that they should see their way to adopt this Motion of my right hon. Friend and report Progress now and resume the sitting and discussion of this Act at the earliest possible occasion.

Question put, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again."
