HC Deb 27 July 1936 vol 315 cc1099-101

May I ask the Prime Minister what business he proposes to take in the event of the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night?


The Government are suspending the Eleven o'Clock Rule in order to obtain the Third Reading of the Isle of Man (Customs) Bill. If possible, we would like to obtain the Committee stage of the Public Health Bill (Lords) to-night. The Government consider it very desirable to pass this Bill into law before the Recess. While the Bill amends the law in some respects, it is largely a Consolidation measure. It was prepared by a departmental committee

appointed by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Wakefield (Mr. Greenwood), when he was Minister of Health, and has been considered by a Joint Select Committee of both Houses. I hope that the result of so much work will not be lost. The other two Measures which we would like to obtain to-night are the Housing Bill and the Private Legislation Procedure (Scotland) Bill (Lords), both of which are Consolidation measures.

Ordered, That this day, notwithstanding anything in Standing Order No. 14, a Supplementary Estimate for a New Service may be considered in Committee of Supply, and that Business other than the Business of Supply may be taken before Eleven of the clock."—[The Prime Minister.]

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, 217; Noes, 84.
