HC Deb 22 January 1947 vol 432 c230
Mr. Churchill

May I ask the acting Leader of the House whether he has any statement to make on Business specially affecting the suspension of the Rule?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)

Yes, Sir. We propose to suspend the Rule in order to obtain the Report stage of the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Bill and the Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill. We also hope that it will be agreeable to the House to take the Committee stage of the Money Resolution for the Pensions (Increase) Bill, which is to be taken as first Order tomorrow. This is a new Resolution designed to ensure that certain aged State pensioners will receive the full benefit of the recent increases in old-age pensions.
