HL Deb 31 July 1931 vol 81 c1311

My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name on the Paper. The latter part of the Motion—what I call the precautionary portion of it, in case it be advisable that the House should reassemble before 20th October—is in the ordinary form, the form which has been adopted four times in this House, and therefore I move it in the ordinàry form. It is merely a precaution.

Moved to resolve, That the House on its adjournment do adjourn for business, other than Judicial Business, to 20th October, except that if it appears to the satisfaction of the Lord Chàncellor that the public interest requires that the House should meet at an earlier time during such adjournment, the Lord Chancellor may give Notice to the Peers that he is so satisfied, and thereupon the House shall meet at the time stated in such Notice, and shall transact its business as if it had been duly adjourned to that time.—(Lord Parmoor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, and ordered accordingly.
