HC Deb 15 June 1933 vol 279 cc322-5

May I ask the Lord President of the Council what the business will be for next week, and also for what purpose he proposes to move the Motion standing on the Paper in his name?

The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)

The Motion on the Paper is a precautionary Motion. We hope to take the first five Orders, and I think that probably they will be completed in good time. We are anxious to get all five. The business next week will be:

Monday and Tuesday: Report stage of the Finance Bill.

Wednesday: Remaining stages of the Unemployment Insurance (Expiring Enactments) Bill; Committee stage of a Supplementary Estimate for the Ministry of Labour.

Thursday: Supply, Committee (8th Allotted Day). The Estimates for the Department of Health, Scotland, and Public Education, Scotland, will be considered.

Friday: Third Reading of the Finance Bill.

The Government also hope during the week to dispose of the remaining stages of the Government of India (Amendment) Bill [Lords,] which is on the Order Paper to-day for Second Reading.

If there is time on any other day other business will be taken.


May I ask whether any other Estimate is to be considered than those for the Scottish Departments of Health and Education?


I have on my Paper at present only the Estimates for the

Departments of Health and Education for Scotland.


Is it possible for us to move to reduce the salary of the Secretary of State for Scotland?


I think that that would arise on the Vote for the Health Department, but I will not commit myself to saying that.


Seeing that we are not consulted in these matters, I beg to give notice to the Secretary of State for Scotland that on that day we shall raise the question, particularly in regard to his treatment of the unemployed in Edinburgh.

Motion made, and Question put, That other Government Business have (precedence 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.]

The House divided: Ayes, 206; Noes, 24.
