§ Mr. RAMSAY MacDONALD
Can the Prime Minister now tell us how far he proposes to go with the business to-day?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
We hope to get the first three Orders, but in the event of the first two Orders taking 2111 longer than I anticipate, I do not propose to ask the House to continue sitting on the third Order after Eleven o clock.
§ Mr. MAXTON
In regard to the third Order, may I ask if the Government propose accepting the Amendments standing on the Paper?
§ impression is that the answer is in the negative.
Motion made, and Question put,
That the Proceedings on Government Business 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, 262; Noes, 123.
