HC Deb 28 May 1924 vol 174 cc423-4

In regard to the Motion for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule, will the Deputy-Leader of the House state how far it is proposed to go?

The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. Clynes)

We are asking for the suspension, of the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night solely to secure the disposal of the two Supply items on the Order Paper, namely, the Airship Service and the Scottish Fisheries.


Will the right, hon. Gentleman, for the 'benefit of Members who are anxious about the Whitsuntide holidays, give us any idea as to whether the "death ray" is to be perpetrated to-morrow night?

Ordered, That the Proceedings of the Committee of Supply be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Clynes.]
