HC Deb 27 July 1925 vol 187 cc37-9

Could the Prime Minister inform the House whether any change has been made in the business of Supply announced for this week?


To-morrow, Tuesday, at eight o'clock we shall take the Home Office Vote instead of the Navy Vote. We shall devote the whole of Wednesday to a discussion of the new naval construction programme.

I might take this opportunity of saying that the Motion put down for the suspension of the Eleven o'clock Rule is for the purpose of taking three small Orders to-night, Nos. 4, Isle of Man (Customs)

Bill, Third Reading; 5, Navy and Air Expenditure (1923–24) Committee, and 6, Telegraph [Money] Report. I would add to these the National Library (Scotland) Bill, Money Resolution.

Captain BENN

Might I ask the Prime Minister whether it would not be more convenient, instead of putting down this Motion in general terms, to state exactly what are the Orders for which the Eleven o'clock Rule is suspended?


I think that I am adopting the usual practice in this matter.

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 Government Business other than the Business of Supply 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, 205; Noes, 74.
