HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1494-5

On a point of Order. There is on the Order Paper a Motion which stands in my name and those of two of my hon. Friends, dealing with the school-leaving age. It has been represented to me that there is some desire to discuss that matter, if opportunity should serve, upon the Motion for the Adjournment. May I ask you, Mr. Speaker, whether I may, with the concurrence of my two hon. Friends and by the general leave of the House, withdraw the Motion on the Paper?


I am afraid that the hon. and learned Member cannot withdraw what is on the Paper now, but he can give notice to-day that it will not be on the Paper to-morrow.

Ordered, That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. P. Snowden.]
