May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what business it is proposed to take next week?


On Monday, Civil and Revenue Departments, Vote on Account, Report stage. A Debate will take place on matters affecting the Post Office.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Local Government (Scotland) Bill, Report stage, comprising the first and second Allotted Days.

On Thursday, it is proposed to move Mr. Speaker out of the Chair on Air Estimates, and to consider Air Votes A, 1, 4, 3, and 8 in Committee.

The business for Friday will be announced later, and if there is time on any day, other Orders will be taken.


Are we to understand that the Chancellor of the Exchequer is not putting down for next week the Supplementary Estimate for the Lord Mayor's Fund?


No, it is not down for next week.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that yesterday he promised to make a statement, in reply to the hon. Member, regarding this Supplementary Estimate? Is he not in a position to do so?
