§ Mr. Attlee
May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is to be the business for the remainder of the week?
§ Sir J. Simon
The Prime Minister will make a statement on the present international situation on Thursday instead of to-morrow. This arrangement will allow of the fullest consultation with Dominion Governments.
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War will make a statement immediately after Questions to-morrow. In view of the fact that Foreign Affairs will occupy the House on Thursday, the Debate on the Ministry of Information and the British Broadcasting Corporation will take place to-morrow.
May I ask whether the House is to have a statement from the Secretary of State for Air?
That the Third Beading of the Finance (No. 2) Bill may be taken immediately after the consideration of the Bill as amended notwithstanding the practice of the House as to the interval between the various stages of such a Bill."—[Sir J. Simon.]
