HC Deb 17 September 1931 vol 256 cc1033-4

May I ask the Prime Minister what will be the business for next week?


On Monday, consideration of a Motion allocating time for the remaining stages of the Finance and National Economy Bills and Supplementary Estimates.

On Tuesday, if the Time Table Motion is passed by the House, Finance Bill. Second Reading.

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday: Committee (first, second and third allotted days) on the National Economy Bill.

On any day, should time permit, other Orders may be taken.

It might be for the convenience of the House if I also say that it is hoped that the Time Table Motion will be handed in at the Table to-night. Copies of the Finance Bill will be available in the Vote Office to-morrow, and the Supplementary Estimates referred to are those mentioned by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in his Budget speech, namely, the two Supplementary Estimates which are required under the Government's proposals dealing with Unemployment Insurance and the Road Fund.
