HC Deb 07 August 1924 vol 176 cc3104-5

May I ask the Leader of the House whether, in the event of the House of Commons reassembling earlier than 28th October to deal with the Irish Bill, the Leader of the House will undertake that the Government will not proceed with any other legislation until 28th October?

The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. Clynes)

The answer to that question is in the affirmative, but I may add that the Government would not be opposed to consultations with the other parties in the House as to whether, in the event, of our assembling to deal with the Irish question, we should continue to sit instead of adjourning, and assembling again at a latter date.
