HC Deb 19 July 1938 vol 338 cc1996-9
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister how far it is proposed to go in the event of the Motion for the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule being carried?

The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)

We shall first debate the Motion with regard to Privileges which stands on the Paper in the name of the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition.

So far as Government Business is concerned, we desire, if possible, to obtain the Business up to and including the tenth Order and the Money Resolution relating thereto. We propose to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule for this purpose but I hope that it will not be necessary to sit unduly late.

A number of the Bills which we desire to take to-day have already been considered on their earlier stages and I do not think, therefore, that the programme is as formidable as it may look. The House will appreciate that there is still a fair amount of Business to be disposed of before the Adjournment for the Summer Recess.

Mr. H. G. Williams

Can the Prime Minister give any indication whether the consideration of Lords Amendments to the Hire Purchase Bill is likely to be taken to-night?

The Prime Minister

That is not on the list for to-night.

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, 277; Noes, 126.
