HC Deb 11 February 1937 vol 320 cc597-8
Mr. Attlee

Would the Prime Minister state what is to be the business next week?

The Prime Minister

The business will be:

Monday: Conclusion of Debate on Second Reading of the Factories Bill and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolutions.

Tuesday: Committee stage of Statutory Salaries Money Resolution until 7.30; consideration of Government of India and Government of Burma Orders now before the House; Third Reading of the Empire Settlement Bill; Committee stage of British Shipping Bill; remaining stages of Reserve Forces Bill.

Wednesday: Committee stage of Defence Loans Money Resolution.

Thursday: The Adjournment of the House will be moved for a Debate on the Report of the Gresford Colliery Disaster.

Friday: Consideration of Private Members' Bills.

During the week, as opportunity offers, other Orders will be taken.

Mr. Attlee

With regard to the business on Wednesday I take it that that business will involve the whole question of the statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer? Are we to take it that it is suggested that we have only one day for that business?

The Prime Minister

Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will be good enough to consult us through the usual channels. Of course, if any change were made, it would mean possibly a considerable readjustment of business.

Mr. Attlee

With regard to time, are we to discuss the whole of this new departure in the space of one day?
