HC Deb 04 December 1953 vol 521 c1483
Mr. C. R. Attlee

May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can make a statement with regard to next Thursday's business?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. R. A. Butler)

Yes, Sir. The business for Thursday of next week will be as follows:

Committee and remaining stages of the Statute Law Revision Bill (Lords);

Report and Third Reading of the Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill; and Consideration of the Motion relating to the Import Duties (Fruit and Vegetables) Order.

It is expected that an Import Duties Order relating to dried peas will be laid on Monday and copies will be made available on Tuesday. In view of its close relationship to the other Order, it may be found convenient to take it at the same Sitting.

It may also be convenient for me to inform the House that it is proposed to suspend the rule for one hour for the Second Reading of the Housing (Repairs and Rents) (Scotland) Bill on Wednesday. This arrangement has been made after discussions through the usual channels on the suggestion made yesterday to my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal by the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel).

Mr. Attlee

I am obliged to the right hon. Gentleman.
