HC Deb 10 June 1937 vol 324 cc1967-71
Mr. Attlee

Will the Prime Minister state the business for next week, and also what he proposes to take in the event of the Eleven o'Clock Rule being suspended to-night?

The Prime Minister

Monday:—Supply, Committee [12th Allotted Day], Board of Education Estimate.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: —Report stage of the Factories Bill. If

the Report stage is concluded at a reasonable hour on Thursday, the Third Reading of the Bill will be moved.

Friday:—Supply, Committee [9th Allotted Day, Second Part], Ministry of Health Estimate.

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

I propose to move to report Progress on the Finance Bill somewhere about half-past seven this evening, and then to take the Scottish Bills Nos. 2 to 5 on the Order Paper. I hope to be able to take all this business to-night, and the Eleven o'Clock Rule is being suspended for that purpose. It is not the intention of the Government to keep the House sitting unduly late.

Mr. Short

Will the Home Office have all their Amendments to the Factories Bill on the Paper by Tuesday?

The Prime Minister

indicated assent.

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, 245; Noes, 111.
