HL Deb 18 December 1930 vol 79 c680

My Lords, in moving the adjournment of the House it might be convenient to the noble Viscount opposite to know that it will be necessary that we should meet tomorrow at twelve o'clock. We do not know yet what will be the result in another place of what has just been done. If matters are settled in another place, the whole matter is settled and the sitting will be quite formal. At 2.30 there will be a Royal Commission. But we are bound, at any rate, to make it possible that we should have a meeting to-morrow, if necessary.


My Lords, I realise the difficulty, of course. That really means that your Lordships will have to look in the papers to-morrow morning to see what has happened in another place. Can the noble and learned Lord tell me whether they are proposing in another place to consider our action to-night or whether they are, postponing it until to-morrow?


That I cannot tell the noble Viscount; I imagine it will be to-night. The noble Viscount is quite right; the intelligence that he is yearning to discuss will, no doubt, be in the papers to-morrow morning. I beg to move that the House do now adjourn.

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

House adjourned at a quarter past five o'clock.
