HC Deb 26 June 1935 vol 303 cc1109-11

May I ask the Prime Minister how much of the business on the Paper it is proposed to ask the House to consider to-day?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

The right hon. Gentleman will recognise the form of the Motion, which has been put down primarily at

the request of the Chairman of Ways and Means who is anxious to get two private Bills through to-night. On that account we are asking the House to agree to the Motion in regard to the private Bills and to the rule relating to half-past Nine. In addition to the first Motion on the Order Paper in the name of the Minister of Agriculture, the Government desire to take to-night the first three Orders on the Paper and the Import Duties Orders which, I understand, will not raise any large or controversial issue.


On that, I am not sure that the Import Duties Orders will not raise any question of importance. We have not had much time to look into them, and there are quite a number of them. It is possible that we shall want to debate them.


The right hon. Gentleman will appreciate that they are exempted business. I do not think that he will find them very troublesome, but, if he does, perhaps he will communicate through the usual channels.

Motion made, and Question put, That the Proceedings on Government business and on any Private Business set down for consideration at half-past Seven of the Clock this evening, by direction of the Chairman of Ways and Means, be exempted from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House) and, notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 6, any such Private Business may be taken after half-past nine of the clock."—[The Prime Minister.]

The House divided: Ayes, 220; Noes, 50.
