HC Deb 22 March 1963 vol 674 c809

11.5 a.m.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. Iain Macleod)

I should like to inform the House of a change in the business to be taken on Tuesday, 26th March.

Following the debate on School Building and Teacher Shortage, the case of Chief Enahoro will be considered again for two hours. The Motion on the Housing (Payments for Well-Maintained Houses) Order will be postponed.

Mr. G. Brown

May I thank the Leader of the House for making this early statement? I confirm that the purpose is to get a Division of the House rather than to rehash the debate which we had at some length yesterday. On the other hand, a Division at twelve o'clock at night, which is what this would mean, might well be a little inconvenient for hon. Members. May we reserve the position to have further talks through the usual channels later in the day about the exact time of the Division?

Mr. Macleod

Yes, of course. If a more suitable arrangement could be made, we will try to help. The right hon. Gentleman knows the difficulty we found in trying to rearrange this debate at short notice.
