§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I desire, on behalf of the Leader of the Opposition, to ask the Prime Minister whether he has any statement to make upon the business of the House?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Committee stage of the Finance Bill will be taken as the first Order to-morrow, Wednesday, 9th July. We hope to complete the Committee stage at about 7.30 o'clock or, at any rate, sufficiently early to admit of the consideration of the Lords Amendments to the Coal Mines Bill being completed without asking the House to sit late. I hope that this arrangement may commend itself to all quarters of the House.
May I, at the same time, announce the business for Friday. On Friday, 11th 241 July, the business will be the Public Works Facilities Bill, Second Reading, and, if time permits, progress will be made with the following Bills which are purely formal. Public Works Loans Bill; Isle of Man (Customs) (No. 2) Bill, and Sea Fisheries Regulation (Expenses) Bill.
