HC Deb 14 September 1948 vol 456 c4
Mr. Speaker

I have to acquaint the House that the House has this day attended His Majesty in the House of Peers, and His Majesty was pleased to make a Most Gracious Speech from the Throne to both Houses of Parliament, of which I have, for greater accuracy, obtained a copy, which is as follows:

My Lords and Members of the House of Commons:

I have summoned you to meet at this time in order that you may give further consideration to the Bill to amend the Parliament Act, 1911, on which there was disagreement between the two Houses last Session.

It is not proposed to bring any other business before you in the present Session.

I pray that the blessing of the Almighty may rest upon your counsels.
