THE EARL OF CRAWFORD
My Lords, I rise to move that the House do adjourn until Monday next. Upon that day the Lord President of the Council will move that an humble Address be presented to His Majesty to congratulate His Majesty on the conclusion of the Armistice, and on the prospect of a victorious peace. On Tuesday it is suggested that the House should meet at 2 p.m. in order to wait upon His Majesty in the Royal Gallery. There will be two or three Bills of a Departmental character which we shall ask your Lordships to read a second time on Monday next—Bills dealing with pensions and pay of the Irish Police and the statutory notice under the Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill, as well as a measure dealing with the organisation of pensions and a Bill relating to bastardy. I shall move on Monday that Standing Order No. XXXIX 156 be suspended; and as it is now clear that the session will end three or four days after Monday, I think that I shall be justified in asking your Lordships to make that suspension last to the end of the session.
