HC Deb 23 July 1934 vol 292 cc1538-41

May I ask the Lord President of the Council whether he has any statement to make on business, and also whether he can say what Orders will be taken to-day?

The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)

The suspension of the Eleven o'Clock rule is being asked for in order to secure the first two Orders. We propose to take also Nos. 3 and 4, both of which are formal but are exempted business.

On Wednesday the Ministry of Labour Vote will be put down.

I regret that I am not yet able to announce the business for Thursday.

On Friday, on the Second Reading of the Appropriation Bill, the position of trade will be debated.

As a result of conversations which have taken place through the usual channels, it has been agreed to treat the remaining stages of the Appropriation Bill on Monday next as formal and to proceed to consider the Opposition Motion of Censure relating to armaments.

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).—[Mr. Baldwin.]

The House divided; Ayes, 211; Noes, 44.
