HC Deb 07 July 1938 vol 338 cc599-603
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister what business it is proposed to take next week, and also how far it is proposed to go to-night in the event of the Motion to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule being carried?

The Prime Minister

The business for next week will be:

Monday.—Consideration of the Report of the Committee of Privileges. It is hoped that the Debate on the Report will be concluded not later than 6.30 p.m. Report stage of the Finance Bill.

Tuesday.—Conclusion of the Report stage of the Finance Bill; Committee stage of the Anglo-Turkish Agreement Bill, and of the Milk (Extension and Amendment) Bill; Second Reading of the War Department (Property) Bill [Lords]; Consideration of Lords Amendments to the Road Haulage Wages Bill, which are expected to be received from another place.

Wednesday.—Supply; Committee (15th Allotted Day).—The Estimate for the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries will be considered.

Thursday.—Second Reading of the Holidays with Pay Bill; the Rating and

Valuation (Air Raid Works) Bill, and of a corresponding Bill relating to Scotland; the Supreme Court of Judicature Bill, and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution; Report and Third Reading of the Administration of Justices (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill [Lords], if reported from the Standing Committee.

Friday.—Finance Bill; Third Reading.

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

With regard to the Motion on the Paper to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night, that has been put down in order to make sure of completing the consideration of the Lords Amendments to the Coal Bill. As the House is no doubt aware, there is a Private Bill set down for consideration at 7.30 this evening by direction of the Chairman of Ways and Means. In view of the state of the Parliamentary programme it is essential that we should dispose of the Lords Amendments to the Coal Bill at to-day's sitting.

Mr. H. G. Williams

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the two Rating and Valuation (Air Raid Works) Bills will be available to Members?

The Prime Minister


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, 257; Noes, 138.
