HL Deb 24 July 1924 vol 58 c1024

My Lords, before the House adjourns I should like to ask the noble Marquess, Lord Salisbury, whether the proposal I made earlier in the day is convenient. I am giving Notice to suspend certain Orders for Monday and under that Notice the Unemployment Insurance (No. 2) Bill will take precedence of other business, except the Question to be asked by Earl Beau-champ. I want to preserve the noble Earl's right. The reason is, as I have stated, that we desire to make progress. Would that course be inconvenient to noble Lords? I hope not.


My noble friend next to me tells me that he has considered this proposal and is quite satisfied that effect should be given to it.


Then I will move the adjournment of the House until 4 p.m. to-morrow. Your Lordships need not come here. There will merely be a formal meeting for the First Reading of one or two Bills, and we only need a quorum. I may mention at the same time that 3.15 p.m. is the hour selected for meeting on Monday.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at half-past seven o'clock.
