§ Mr. LANSBURY
May I ask the Prime Minister how far he intends to go with business, if the Motion on the Paper for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule is carried? May I also ask if the Prime Minister is able to make a more definite statement about the business for Thursday?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As I announced last Thursday, the Vote of Censure will be taken on Thursday, provided that the proceedings on the London Passenger Transport Bill are concluded to-morrow. The Government hope that it will be possible to complete the Report stage of that Bill to-night, and to devote to-morrow's sitting to the Third Reading Debate. That will clear the way for Thursday. The Motion on the Paper for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule will not be moved. If the Report stage of the London Passenger Transport Bill is concluded to-day before Eleven o'Clock, the Third Reading will not be moved until 639 to-morrow, and any time available before Eleven o'clock to-night will be devoted to the Second Reading of the Visiting Forces (British Commonwealth) Bill. In any event, the Report stage of the Housing (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) [Money], which is exempted business, will be taken to-night.
