Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister what will be the business for next week; and also what other Government business, other than Supply, it is proposed to take to-night?

The Prime Minister

The business for next week will be as follows:

Monday: Supply; Committee (19th Allotted Day). The Mines Department Vote will be considered. Ways and Means, Committee.

Tuesday: Supply; Report (20th Allotted Day). The Foreign Office Vote

will be considered. Ways and Means, Report.

Wednesday: Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, Second Reading. Matters relating to the Home Office will be debated.

Thursday: Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, remaining stages. Health Administration will be considered.

At Ten o'clock on Monday and on Tuesday, the Committee and Report stages respectively of all outstanding Supply Votes will be put from the Chair.

During the week outstanding business will be dealt with, including the Lords Amendments to the Fire Brigades Bill, the Bacon Industry Bill and to any other Bills which have already been passed by this House.

If all necessary business has been disposed of, it is hoped to take the Motion for the Summer Adjournment on Friday, 29th July. The proposed date of reassembly in the autumn will be announced next week.

For to-night, we propose to suspend the Eleven o'Clock Rule in order to obtain the Third and Fourth Orders on the Paper.
