HC Deb 11 November 1926 vol 199 cc1260-3

I beg to ask the Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the business to be taken next week?


On Monday next we propose to take the Committee stage of the Supplementary Estimate for Broadcasting.

Tuesday: The Committee stage of the Supplementary Estimate for the Relief of Unemployment; the Report of the Broadcasting Supplementary Estimate; and Ways and Means Committee, which will be a very formal stage.

Wednesday: The Committee stage of the Money Resolution for the Housing (Rural Workers) Bill; Report of the Relief of Unemployment Supplementary Estimate and Ways and Means, Report.

Thursday and Friday: Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, Second and Third Readings.

If time permit on any day next week, we shall take other Orders on the Paper including the Second Reading of the

Horticultural Produce (Sales on Commission) Bill [Lords].

Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs Bill [Lords].

Naval Reserve (Officers) Bill.

Supreme Court of Judicature of Northern Ireland Bill.

Workmen's Compensation (No. 2) Bill.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any information is available regarding the proposed Estimate for Belief of Unemployment; secondly, whether the Estimate and the White Paper promised with respect to broadcasting will be available, and, if so, how soon?


I think at four o'clock this afternoon Papers in regard to both Estimates will be in the Vote Office.


What precisely is meant by the Estimate for Relief of Unemployment?


Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will wait to see the White Paper.


Are we to understand that, as there is no mention of the Merchandise Marks Bill, it is being dropped for this session?


Certainly not, Sir.


Does the right hon. and gallant Gentleman realise that it is controversial Measure, and will take a long time?

Motion made, and Question put, That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply, and the Proceedings on the Electricity (Supply) Bill be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing. Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Sir W. Joynson-Hicks.]
