HC Deb 03 April 1946 vol 421 cc1254-5
Mr. Eden

I should like to ask the Leader of the House whether he has any changes to announce in Friday's Business?

Mr. H. Morrison

Yes, Sir. We propose to rearrange the Business announced for Friday in view of the fact that there was not time to obtain the Second Reading of the United Nations Bill last Friday. It is proposed to take Business in the following order:

Report and Third Reading of the Patents and Designs Bill [Lords];

Second Reading of the United Nations Bill [Lords]; and

Committee stages of the necessary Money Resolution.

Afterwards we shall consider the Motions to approve the continuance in force of the Government of Burma Proclamations and the Motion to approve the Purchase Tax (Exemptions) (No. 1) Order.

Mr. Godfrey Nicholson

Does the Leader of the House anticipate that there will be time for a reasonably long Debate on Burma matters?

Mr. Morrison

We were hoping with the general assent of the House that that might be so. Therefore, the first three Orders might be taken reasonably speedily, and that would leave a good time for discussion on the Burma Motion.
