HC Deb 18 July 1939 vol 350 c180
45. Sir Joseph Leech

asked the Prime Minister whether, in order to anticipate and relieve the pressure of business on this House, he will consider arranging that a larger number of suitable Bills shall be introduced first into the other House, particularly those of which the broad principles are not of a contentious nature?

The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)

I would remind my hon. Friend that many Bills depend upon Financial Resolutions, and for this and other reasons it has not been practicable this Session to present more Bills in another place.
