It is urgent to ask the House to pass these Supplementary Estimates and a special Consolidated Fund Bill, which will be taken during the week after next, in order to give authority for the issue of the money.
The House will remember that on 19th December I announced arrangements which had been reached between both sides of the House, and it is part of the arrangement that we should sit until 10.30 on days when the Bill is in Committee. That is why that Motion has been brought forward, to put that verbal arrangement into words.
Ways and Means Resolutions, upon which the Consolidated Fund Bill will be brought in.

- THURSDAY, 29TH JANUARY—Committee stage:

§ Mr. Attlee
Is it intended that on Tuesday, on the Foreign Office Grants and Services relating to a credit for Argentina, we shall be able to discuss the whole of the agreement with the Argentine?
§ Mr. Crookshank
It does not rest with me to define the scope of the debate, but if that can be arranged it will certainly be agreeable to the Government.
