§ Mr. LANSBURY
May I ask the Prime Minister what business he proposes for the remainder of this week and next week?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Debate on the Address will be concluded on Wednesday of next week, and for the convenience of Members I propose to outline the course of the Debate and to inform the House as to the Amendments to the Address which it is understood Mr. Speaker proposes to select.
To-day: Conclusion of the general Debate on the Address.
To-morrow: The Opposition Amendment will be moved.
Monday: Conclusion of the Debate on the Opposition Amendment to the Address.
Tuesday: Discussion of an Amendment to be tabled by the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Sir A. Sinclair).
Wednesday: Discussion of the Amendment in the name of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill); conclusion of the Debate on the Address.
Thursday: Second Reading of the Electricity (Supply) Bill; consideration of a Motion to approve the Potato (Import Regulation) Order, 1934.
Friday: Second Reading of the Educational Endowments (Scotland) Bill and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution.
On any day, if there is time, other Orders may be taken.
§ Mr. MACLEAN
In regard to the Educational Endowments (Scotland) Bill which it is proposed to take a week to-morrow, does the Prime Minister not think that, in view of the amount of feeling that has been aroused in Scotland by the work of this Commission, he should devote a full day to it, instead of merely a Friday until four o'clock? I am not pressing for an immediate reply, but would he not consult the Secretary of State for Scotland to see whether that could be done, because I am certain that a large number of Scottish Members will wish to take part in the Debate?
§ Mr. MAXTON
Is the electricity legislation which is mentioned in the King's Speech the same as that which was withdrawn at the end of last Session?
