HC Deb 03 December 1936 vol 318 cc1441-5

May I ask the Prime Minister the business for next week?


Monday: Report and Third Reading of the Public Order Bill, which we hope will be concluded by about half-past nine o'clock. Afterwards we shall take the concluding stages of the Railway Freight Rebates Bill [Lords]. Tuesday: Committee and remaining stages of the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill. It is hoped that reasonable time will be available for the discussion of a Motion standing in the name of the Leader of the Opposition relating to the Unemployment Assistance Regulations.

Wednesday: Private Members' Motions.

Thursday: Committee stage of Ways and Means Resolutions, to impose duties on imported beef and veal.

Friday: Private Members' Bills.

During the week as opportunity offers other business will be taken, including the Unemployment Assistance (Temporary Provisions) Amendment [Money] Resolution.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Ways and Means Resolution on the imports of beef will be available?


I hope it will be printed at the week-end.


May I ask whether that means that we shall have the opportunity for a general discussion upon the Anglo-Argentine Agreement as a whole?


That is another question. I could not answer it without notice.


Will it be possible to supply Members of the House with a White Paper indicating the general home, foreign and Empire implications of the proposals which are to be submitted on Thursday next?


My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture will make a note of that question. I could not answer it now.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman how far he proposes to go to-night in the event of the suspension of the Eleven o'clock Rule?


We are suspending the Rule in order to obtain the Second Reading of the Railway Freight Rebates Bill and the Report and Third Reading of the Trunk Roads Bill, and we should like afterwards, if possible, to take some exempted business—the Motion with regard to the inclusion of private gardeners in the unemployment scheme and Orders 3 and 4 relating to the Instruments of Instructions to Governors of Provinces in India and to the Governor of Burma, which were debated in the House a short time ago.

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)."—[The Prime Minister.]

The House divided: Ayes, 273; Noes, 126.
