HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 c22
45. Mr. Denville

asked the Prime Minister whether he will arrange that no legislation shall in future be brought before the House except that which is necessary and directly connected with winning the war?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Attlee)

The main Business of the House has been and will be the consideration of those Measures which are urgently necessary for the effective prosecution of the war, but it may be found necessary from time to time to bring forward Measures which may not be directly connected with the war.
