HL Deb 04 August 1919 vol 36 c255

My Lords, I beg to make the Motion that stands in my name on the Paper in reference to Government business. In all probability in the course of the next week it will also be my duty to propose the suspension of Standing Order No. XXXIX, to enable us to take particular Bills through more than one stage in the course of a day.

Moved, That Government business take precedence of other business (except on Wednesdays) until the House adjourn for the Recess; and that Standing Order No. XXI be considered in order to its being suspended so far as is necessary for the purpose.—(Earl Curzon of Kedleston.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
