§ Mr. Greenwood
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Police (His Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary) Bill is not in the hands of Members or in the Vote Office yet? Will he expedite it, as no one knows what is in the Bill?
§ Mr. Edgar Granville
When are we likely to get a Second Reading of the Water Bill, which was recently introduced in this House?
Is my right hon. Friend in a position to indicate when we may expect the Scottish Education Bill?
§ Mr. Pickthorn
Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us about the opportunity, which I think was half promised, for a discussion of the new Burnham scales; and can we be sure that such a discussion will be in time to influence the Minister, before he makes his final decision?
§ Mr. Attlee
We will endeavour to make arrangements for an opportunity, but as the hon. Member is aware these scales have not necessarily to come before the House. There is no particular machinery for that, but we will try to find an opportunity, in order that the House may have a discussion before the Minister reaches his final decision.
§ Mr. A. Bevan
It was stated the other day that an opportunity would be given to the House to have a full Debate on the very important pronouncement made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer concerning the establishment of corporations to finance capital works after the war. Could my right hon. Friend give early consideration to a Debate on that subject?
Mr. Graham White
Is it still the intention of the Government to proceed with the Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill?
§ Mr. Gallacher
In view of the decision of the Amalgamated Engineering Union to call a national conference on redundancy, will the right hon. Gentleman not consider giving the House an opportunity to discuss that very important matter?
§ Sir W. Smithers
Can my right hon. Friend say, approximately, when we are to get the National Insurance Bill before the House?
