HC Deb 01 November 1972 vol 845 c173


Order read for resuming adjourned debate on Question [31st October]: That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows: Most Gracious Sovereign, We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has adressed to both Houses of Parliament.—[Mr. Buck.]

Question again proposed.

Mr. Speaker

Before I call upon the first speaker it may be of some help to the House if I indicated what has been suggested to me as the pattern of the debate. During the debate today the main speeches will relate to the Industrial Relations Act and unemployment; on Thursday to housing and land; on Friday to prices and food; on Monday to poverty; on Tuesday to the economic situation.
