HC Deb 09 July 1925 vol 186 cc610-3

Mr. RAMSAY MacDONALD (by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister if he will be good enough to tell us what business he proposes to take, first of all to-morrow, and then next week?


To-morrow, Friday, in addition to the Unemployment Insurance (Money) Resolution in Committee, we propose to take the Second Heading of the Education (Scotland) (Superannuation) Bill and of the Wireless Telegraphy (Explanation) Bill, and, if time permit, other Orders on the Paper,

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Bill, Committee.

Thursday: Supply, Committee—the Vote will be announced on Monday—and Report stage of the Unemployment Insurance (Money) Resolution.

Friday: Summer Time Bill, Report and Third Reading, and, if time permit, other Orders on the Paper.


May I ask, discreetly or otherwise, whether it is the intention of the Government to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next?


Yes. There was, I think, some kind of agreement on that subject that we should not sit late, and I hope on each day it may be possible

to finish the business by, perhaps, 12 o'clock or a little later, and to finish the Committee stage on Wednesday.

Motion made, and Question put, That this day, notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 15, Business other than Business of Supply may be taken before Eleven of the Clock, and that the Proceedings on the Teachers (Superannuation) Bill be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]

The House divided: Ayes. 215; Noes, 97.
