HC Deb 14 May 1928 vol 217 cc678-81

Can the Prime Minister say what Estimates will be taken on Wednesday, and what the business will be on Friday?


I am sorry I cannot yet say about Friday, but on Wednesday we shall put down the Board of Education Vote.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the proceedings on the Currency and Bank Notes Bill and on the Bankers (Northern Ireland) Bill be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]


On a point of Order. May I submit that there are two questions involved in this Motion, and ask whether two Divisions or only one Division will be taken?


No, only one. The business specified under the Standing Order may include two or more Bills, and sometimes it includes some other Government business.

Question put.

The House divided: Ayes, 204; Noes, 94.
