HC Deb 05 May 1930 vol 238 cc635-6

May I ask the Prime Minister what the business will be on Wednesday? I should be glad also to know how far it is proposed to proceed to-day? I put my question in two parts.


On Wednesday, the Home Office Vote has been put down for consideration in Committee of Supply. Regarding the business to-day, the first three Orders on the Paper were announced to be taken to-day, that is the Railways (Valuation for Rating) Bill, and then the Money Resolution dealing with Air Transport (Subsidy Agreements), and the Overseas Trade Bill, Second Reading. We should like very much, if possible, to get the Board of Education Scheme (Devon, Crediton, Exhibition Foundation) Confirmation Bill, Second Reading, which I understand is non-contentious; and we are very anxious to get the Invergordon Water Supply Bill before a Select Committee of the House. After the Second Reading of that Bill, we shall move that it be committed to a Select Committee. We should like to get those items. We propose to go no further to-day.
