§ Mr. LANSBURY
May I ask the Lord President of the Council what will be the business for next week; and also what business he intends to endeavour to get through to-night, if the Motion on the Paper is carried?
§ The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)
To use the right hon. Gentleman's word, we shall endeavour to get the first five Orders to-night.
§ The business for next week will be:
§ Monday; Supply Committee, 18th Allotted Day—India Office Vote.
§ Tuesday: Remaining stages of the Administration of Justice (Scotland) Bill, Church of Scotland (Property and Endowments) Amendment Bill [Lords], Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill, Administration of Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill [Lords], and Service of Process (Justices) Bill; Second. Reading of the Isle of Man (Customs) Bill; Report stage, Navy, Army and Air Expenditure, 1931.
§ Friday: Road and Rail Traffic Bill, Third Reading.
§ On any day, if time permits, other Orders may be taken.
§ Mr. LANSBURY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, although the Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill deals with what appears to be a very small point, it is a highly contentious matter, and may take some time; and, in these circumstances, will he not exclude it if we get pinched for time to-night? The point which that Bill covers is a. very highly contentious one, and we shall want to oppose it with all the strength that we can put into the opposition.
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I must acknowledge the right hon. Gentleman's courtesy in advising me of that. I think, however, we must wait until we get to that point and make our plans when we can see better what the position is.
§ Mr. LANSBURY
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the fact that we are getting close to the end of the Session, and do not want to get into bad habits by sitting very late on these nice, pleasant evenings?
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Could the right hon. Gentleman give us any indication as to when the Government propose to take the Lords Amendments to the Agricultural Marketing Bill?
§ Mr. LANSBURY
Can the right hon. Gentleman give us any idea whether we are going to adjourn when the House rises, or to prorogue; and when we shall re-assemble?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I hope to be able to say something more definite about the reassembly of the House before we separate, but it will be an adjournment, and not a prorogation.
§ Mr. MAXTON
The right hon. Gentleman has said that Monday will be the 18th allotted Supply day. That only leaves two days more. Will an opportunity be provided to discuss the Dominions Office before the allotted days have expired?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I cannot answer that question positively at the moment, but I understand that the Dominions Office Vote has been asked for on one of the two remaining days.

§ ment, before the House adjourns, on the question of the Cunarder on the Clyde? I do not know whether he has seen the statement in the Press to-day. Would it not be possible for the Government to make some authoritative statement, rather than leave the information to be obtained from the public Press, in view of the terrible anxiety which prevails among large numbers of poor people who are considerably concerned?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
At the moment I can only suggest that the hon. Member should put a question down; I am afraid I have no information at hand at the moment.
Motion made, and Question put,
That other Government Business have predecence this day of the Business of Supply, and that the Proceedings on Government Business be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Baldwin.]
