HC Deb 20 June 1932 vol 267 cc773-4

Will the Lord President of the Council tell us the purpose for which the Motion suspending the Eleven o'clock Rule to-night is to be moved, and whether he intends to sit late on the Hire Purchase and Small Debt (Scotland) Bill?


The Motion to suspend the Eleven o'clock Rule is put down in order to secure the Report stage of the Hire Purchase and Small Debt (Scotland) Bill, and as this is the second day on which we shall discuss the Estimates of the Ministry of Transport, and also bearing in mind the fact that the speed limit has been removed from the roads, I hope it will be possible to get all the business.

Ordered: That, notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 15, Business other than the Business of Supply may be taken this day, before Eleven of the clock, and that the Proceedings on the Hire Purchase and Small Debt (Scotland) Bill be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Baldwin.]
