HC Deb 05 May 1938 vol 335 cc1038-41
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister to state the business for next week, and also what Orders it is proposed to take to-day, if the Motion on the Paper is carried?

The Prime Minister

The business for next week is as follows:

Monday: Second Reading of the Housing (Rural Workers) Amendment Bill and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolutions; and, if there is time, Second Reading of the Administration of Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill [Lords].

Tuesday: Second Reading of the Fire Brigades Bill and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution; Committee stage of the Eire (Confirmation of Agreements) Bill.

Wednesday: Second Reading of the Road Haulage Wages Bill, and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution; remaining stages of the Eire (Confirmation of Agreements) Bill.

Thursday: Supply: Committee [5th Allotted Day]—The Air Ministry Vote will be considered.

Friday: Consideration of Private Members' Bills.

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

In regard to to-night, we are proposing the suspension of the Eleven o'Clock Rule in order to make sure of obtaining the Second Reading of the Eire Bill and the Committee stage of the two Money Resolutions, one of which will be moved in Committee of Ways and Means. We desire also to take the Report stage of the Bacon Industry [Money] Resolution, which is the Third Order. I have no reason to suppose that the House will be asked to sit late. The Money Resolution of the Fire Brigades Bill will be on the Order Paper to-morrow.

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, 226; Noes, 102.
