HC Deb 23 February 1945 vol 408 c1099
Mr. Arthur Greenwood

May I ask the Leader of the House whether he has any statement to make about Business next week?

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)

I undertook yesterday to consider the suggestion made by some of my hon. Friends that we might arrange to have a third day allotted to the Debate on the Crimea Conference. The Government have considered the matter, and they are prepared to give a third day for the Debate next week. The Debate will therefore take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week, and the Air Estimates which were to have been taken on Thursday, will now be postponed until the following week.

Mr. Erskine-Hill

May I thank my right hon. Friend for having made this concession to meet what, I believe, are the genuine views of a great many Members of this House?

Mr. Godfrey Nicholson

May I add my thanks to the right hon. Gentleman? I suppose it means that on the first and second days there will be no extension of the Sitting?

Mr. Eden

Yes, Sir, that is so. I think that in a big matter of this kind it is more dignified for the House to rise at its normal hour.
