HC Deb 21 January 1937 vol 319 cc353-7
Mr. Attlee

Will the Prime Minister state the business for next week, and will he also tell us for what purpose he is moving the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night?

The Prime Minister

The suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule is precautionary. We desire to obtain the Second Reading of the Livestock Industry Bill and the Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution, and afterwards we propose to take the Second Reading of the Beef and Veal Customs Duties Bill, which is exempted business. The Business for next week is as follows:

Monday: Second Reading of the Empire Settlement Bill; Committee stage of the Beef and Veal Customs Duties Bill; and Second Reading of the Unemployment Assistance (Temporary Provisions) Amendment Bill.

Tuesday: Discussion of the Motion of Censure standing on the Order Paper in the name of the Leader of the Opposition with regard to dismissals from the Royal Dockyards; and further consideration of the Beef and Veal Customs Duties Bill.

Wednesday: Private Members' Motions.

Thursday: Second Reading of the Maternity Services (Scotland) Bill, and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution, and, if there is time, Second Reading of the Harbours, Piers and Ferries (Scotland) Bill.

Friday: Private Members' Bills.

On any day, as opportunity offers, other business will be taken, including the Public Works Loans Bill, consideration of the East India Loans Money Resolution, India and Burma (Existing Laws) Bill [Lords], and consideration of Money Resolutions for the Chairmen of Traffic Commissioners and Statutory Salaries.

Mr. Thorne

Has the Home Secretary made any report to the Cabinet about the Factories Bill?

The Prime Minister

I regret to say that Cabinet discussions are supposed to be secret.

Mr. Mabane

How long is it proposed to give to the Empire Settlement Bill on Monday? Will it be a whole day?

The Prime Minister

Yes, if necessary.

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, 221; Noes, 109.
