§ Mr. Attlee
May I ask the Lord Privy Seal whether he has any statement to make about the course of business today?
§ The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Harry Crookshank)
Yes, Sir. We hope that it will be agreeable to the House tonight, after the business already announced has been dealt with, to consider a Resolution in Committee of Ways and Means authorising an Amendment to the Requisitioned Houses and Housing (Amendment) Bill which will remedy a technical defect arising out of the reconsideration of an Amendment which was agreed to in the Standing Committee. It was an Opposition Amendment, which was accepted, and this is the consequence of it.
We shall then resume the Committee stage of the Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Bill, as I announced last evening, when we reported Progress.
Proceedings on Government Business exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of Standing Order No. 1 (Sittings of the House).—[The Prime Minister.]
