HC Deb 22 June 1937 vol 325 cc1030-3
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister how far it is proposed to go with business to-night, in the event of his Motion being carried?

The Prime Minister

I hope that the Debate on the Motion with regard to Members' salaries will be finished by about half-past seven. It is then proposed to take the Third Reading of the Factories Bill, and afterwards the Report stage of the Ways and Means Resolution which was considered in Committee yesterday. We should also like to obtain the Second Reading of the Teachers (Superannuation) Bill and of the Post Office arid Telegraph (Money) Bill. I do not think that either of these Bills is very contentious.

Sir W. Davison

May we take it that the Prime Minister does not propose to closure the Debate on the question of Members' salaries? A number of Members on this side of the House would like to express their views on the matter, and state their reasons for feeling unable to vote for the proposal.

The Prime Minister

I hope I did not give any impression that it is intended to

closure the Debate. What I said was that I hoped it would finish at about half-past seven. I do not think that that will prevent any hon. Members from expressing their views, provided that they do not express them at unnecessary length.

Mr. Attlee

In the event of the Prime Minister's hope not being realised, and the Debate being prolonged, may we take it that the Third Reading of the Factories Bill will not be entered upon at a late hour to-night?

The Prime Minister

Not at a late hour.

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, 233; Noes, 120.
