HL Deb 22 March 1912 vol 11 c614

It not being possible for the Government to make any definite statement as to whether the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Bill would be received from the Commons that night,

EARL BEAUCHAMP moved that the House adjourn during pleasure, the intention being, if the Bill should come up from the Commons, to give it a First Reading forthwith and proceed with the Second Reading to-morrow (Saturday).

House adjourned accordingly during pleasure, and resumed at 11.30 p.m. by Lord Colebrooke; but in view of the altered situation in the Commons with regard to the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Bill there was no business for their Lordships to transact.

House adjourned at half-past Eleven o'clock, to Monday next, a quarter before Eleven o'clock.
