HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 cc2105-6

May I ask the Prime Minister what the Business will be on next week?


On Monday we propose to move Mr. Speaker out of the Chair on going into Committee of Supply on the Army Estimates, and to takes Votes A, 1, 10, 11, 13, 14 and 15 in Committee. The Committee of Ways and Means Resolutions will also be taken.

Tuesday will be the 3rd Allotted Supply Day, and I hope that it will be possible to complete the Report stage of the Air, Navy and Army Votes which have been taken in Committee. The Report of Ways and Means Resolutions will also be taken.

Wednesday: Consolidated Fund Bill, Second Reading. The subject of Beam Wireless Telephony will be discussed, and possibly other subjects.

Thursday: Consolidated Fund Bill, further stages. I am not yet in a position to announce the subject to be discussed on that occasion.

Friday: Committee stage of the Money Resolution relating to Unemployment Insurance, which will be placed on the Paper to-morrow. The White Paper will also be circulated to-morrow.

On any day, if time permits, other Orders may be taken.

Ordered, That the Proceedings in Committee on the Coal Mines Bill have precedence this day of the Business of Supply, and be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]
