HC Deb 10 June 1936 vol 313 cc209-11

May I ask the Prime Minister for what reason he is proposing to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night?


We shall report Progress in Committee on the

Finance Bill at 7.30 p.m. We hope afterwards to conclude the Committee stage of the Air Navigation Bill and the Pensions (Governors of Dominions, etc.) Bill. We are suspending the Eleven o'Clock Rule for this purpose. There is one other Order which, I think, is non-contentious, and might be disposed of, namely, the Report and Third Reading of the Weights and Measures Bill.


I suppose that it is not intended to ask the House to sit late, or to take the Pensions (Governors of Dominions, etc.) Bill at a late hour? The Prime Minister will recollect that on previous occasions the question has been raised with regard to this Bill that we should take it in good time.


I hope to manage it. I will not press the one point which the right hon. Gentleman has mentioned, if it will be inconvenient.

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, 202; Noes, 121.
