HC Deb 24 April 1953 vol 514 c1625
Mr. Ede

May I ask the Leader of the House whether he has any alteration to announce in the business for next week?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Harry Crookshank)

Yes, Sir. The House will remember that I was asked yesterday by the acting Leader of the Opposition whether I could keep the door a little ajar with regard to the foreign affairs debate which I had announced. As a result of that, it has been agreed to defer the debate on foreign affairs until early in the week after next.

That leaves Tuesday and Wednesday open, and the Government propose that on Tuesday we should take the Second Reading of the National Insurance Bill and on Wednesday Supply [12th Allotted Day], it is proposed to move Mr. Speaker out of the Chair on the Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1953-54. The House will recall that the hon. Member for Anglesey (Mr. C. Hughes) was successful in the Ballot and will call attention to industrial output.

The business for Thursday remains unaltered.
