§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Motion for suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule is primarily in order to finish the Committee stage of the Wheat Bill; but in addition, to enable us to get the Committee stage and Third Reading of the Isle of Man (Customs) Bill and the Committee stage of the Tanganyika and British Honduras Loans Bill. The Government would like to obtain also the remaining stages of the Dangerous Drugs Bill which has come from another place, but it is not intended to keep the House sitting late in order to pass that Bill.
Motion made, and Question put,
That the Proceedings on Government Business be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]
§ The House divided: Ayes, 289; Noes, 27.
