§ The Chairman of Ways and Means (Sir Dennis Herbert)
I beg to move,That Standing Order 242 shall have effect as if for the proviso to that Order the following proviso were substituted: 'Provided always that the provisions of this Standing Order shall not apply to an adjournment from a day in one week to a day in the following week.'The explanation of this Motion is very simple, and I think I ought to give it to the House. It is merely a question of extending the week-end so that it does not finish until the day on which we now normally commence our series of Sittings.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
