HL Deb 22 May 1930 vol 77 c1023

My Lords, I do not know if it would be convenient for the noble and learned Lord, the Leader of the House, to give us some information as to what course he proposes to pursue with regard to business during the next few days, and especially with regard to the approaching Whitsuntide Recess?


My Lords, I am much obliged to the noble and learned Viscount for asking me that Question. It sems to me that we may reasonably be expected to have finished all the work that we have in hand by the Wednesday before Whitsuntide, and then we might adjourn on that day—we shall have to make some arrangements as to a Royal Commission and so on, but I do not want to go into details now—until the following Tuesday week, which will be an ordinary Whitsuntide vacation. I am not quite certain how long we shall be away, but when we come back there will undoubtedly be some very hard work for your Lordships' House to do in order to get through the rest of the programme before the end of July. I cannot say more at present, but I think this sufficiently answers the noble and learned Viscount's Question.


I am much obliged to the noble and learned Lord. Your Lordships are not unaccustomed to being asked to work rather hard in the summer towards the end of the Session.
