HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 c257
Mr. Attlee

May I ask the Prime Minister to state the business for next week?

The Prime Minister

The business next week will be:

Tuesday—Consideration of the Opposition Amendment to the Address.

Wednesday—Statement on a Motion for the Adjournment of the House. Afterwards the Debate on the Opposition Amendment to the Address will be resumed and, it is hoped, brought to a conclusion by 8.3o p.m. We shall then take the Second Readings of the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill and of the Postponement of Enactments (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, and the Committee stage of any necessary Money Resolutions.

Thursday—The Opposition Liberal Amendment will be taken and the Debate on the Address brought to a conclusion.

The House will not sit on Friday.

Mr. Attlee

Has the right hon. Gentleman considered our request for a secret Session?

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir, it has been under consideration, but I am not in a position to make a statement to-day. Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will put his question again on Tuesday next, when I shall, perhaps, be able to give him an answer.

Sir John Haslam

Could we hear what the question was and know what the Prime Minister's reply was?
