HC Deb 14 July 1938 vol 338 cc1527-31
Mr. Greenwood

May I ask the Leader of the House what will be the business for next week; and for what purpose it is proposed to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule to-night?

Sir J. Simon

The business for next week will be as follows:

Monday: Supply; Committee (16th Allotted Day). The Estimates for the Unemployment Assistance Board and the Ministry of Labour will be considered. Motion to approve the Unemployment Assistance (Winter Adjustments) Regulations.

Tuesday: Consideration of any further Lords Amendments to the Coal Bill which may be received from another place. Further consideration of the following Bills: Holidays with Pay; Rating and Valuation (Air-Raid Works); Rating and Valuation (Air-Raid Works) (Scotland); Supreme Court of Judicature (Amendment) (No. 2). Second Reading

of the Young Persons (Employment) Bill [Lords], Isle of Man (Customs) Bill, and Limitation Bill [Lords]. Navy, Army, and Air Expenditure, 1936: Committee.

Wednesday: Supply, Committee (17th Allotted Day). The Estimates for the Department of Health for Scotland will be considered.

Thursday: Supply, Committee (18th Allotted Day). The following Scottish Estimates will be considered: Public Education, Scotland; Scottish Office; Law Charges and Courts of Law, Scotland.

The business for Friday will be announced later.

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

As regards the Motion for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule, it is for the purpose of obtaining the business up to and including the sixth Order on the Paper.

Mr. Silverman

May I ask, with regard to the fifth Order, whether it is the intention to take that at a late hour? It is the Administration of Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, which, as I think the right hon. Gentleman knows, arouses a good deal of misgiving among Members on both sides of the House, and I would submit that it is not really desirable that we should take it at a very late hour.

Sir J. Simon

I dare say the hon. Member will recall that consideration of the Measure in question has been put off, I think more than once. I hope it will not be taken very late, but we really must, at this stage of the Session, get on and do our business.

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)."—[Sir J. Simon.]

The House divided: Ayes, 177; Noes, 113.
