HC Deb 08 April 1937 vol 322 cc363-6
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister what will be the business for next week?

The Prime Minister

Monday: Second Reading of the Ministers of the Crown Bill and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution; Committee and remaining stages of the Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill.

Tuesday: It is proposed to move Mr. Speaker out of the Chair on going into Committee of Supply on the Civil and Revenue Departments Estimates, and to consider Class VII, Buildings Votes 10 and 8, in Committee.

Wednesday: Committee stage of the Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.

Thursday: Second Reading of the Local Government (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Bill, and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution; Second

Reading of the Public Records (Scotland) Bill; Report and Third Reading of the Maternity Services (Scotland) Bill, and of the Harbours, Piers and Ferries (Scotland) Bill.

Friday: Consideration of private Members' Bills.

On any day, if there is time, other Orders will be taken.

Mr. Attlee

With regard to Monday's business, it is not, I take it, the intention to embark on the remaining stages of the Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill at a very advanced hour?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. We have, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, to get that Bill by the end of the month, and, if it should be that the proceedings on the Ministers of the Crown Bill are concluded in good time, we should hope to make progress with it.

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, 249; Noes, 101.
