HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 cc954-6
Mr. Churchill

May I ask the Leader of the House whether he has any statement to make about the date of reassembly, and the Business for that week?

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

We propose that the House should resume in the autumn on Tuesday, 8th October. I would remind the House that power already exists for Mr. Speaker, on representations being made by the Government, to call the House together at an earlier date, if such a course should appear necessary in the public interest.

The Business which we propose to take during the first week after the Recess is as follows:

Tuesday, 8th October—Second Reading of the Atomic Energy Bill, and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution.

Wednesday, 9th October—Report and Third Reading of the Hill Farming Bill; Second Reading of the Police (Scotland) Bill [Lords]; County Councils Associa-ciation (Scotland) Bill; and of the Education (Scotland) Bill [Lords].

Thursday, 10th October—There will be an opportunity for a Debate on housing in Scotland on the Motion for the Adjournment of the House.

Friday, nth October—Committee and remaining stages of the Atomic Energy Bill.

During the week we also hope to take the Second Reading of the Roosevelt Memorial Bill, if reported upon by the Examiners.
