HC Deb 04 December 1925 vol 188 cc2801-2

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."— [Commander Eyres Monsell.]


Will the Prime Minister be good enough to say what he proposes shall be the business for next week.

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

Monday, Report of Ways and Means Resolutions.

Tuesday, All stages of the Bill necessary to give effect to the Irish Agreement.

Wednesday, Second Reading of Finance (No. 2) Bill.

Thursday, Supplementary Estimates for the British Empire Exhibition Guarantee, and the Coal Industry Subvention.

If time be available on any of the days I have mentioned, we shall take other Orders on the Paper. Friday's business will be announced later.

I should like to say, with reference to the business for Monday, that, owing to the shortness of time remaining in this Session, it will be necessary to postpone some business, to allow time for the Bill necessary to give effect to the Irish agreement. I have, therefore, decided to postpone the Fourth Resolution (Paper) under the Safeguarding of Industries for this Session on that account.


When may we hope to have a copy of the Irish Bill.


It will be introduced on Monday and I hope it will be in the Vote Office on Monday the moment it is introduced. The Bill consists of one Clause, with the Agreement. It is merely a ratification of the Agreement, which makes alterations in the terms of the existing Act.

Captain BENN

Does the Prime Minister expect to get the Report stage of all three Tariff Reform Resolutions on Monday?


I should hope there would be no doubt of that. I imagine that there has been a tolerable amount of discussion already.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

The remaining Government Orders were read, and, postponed.

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER adjourned the House without Question put, pursuant to Standing Order No. 3, until Monday next (7th December), pursuant to the Order of the House of 16th November.

Adjourned at Three Minutes after Four o'Clock.
