HL Deb 09 February 1932 vol 83 c516

My Lords, I should like to ask whether the noble and learned Viscount the Leader of the House has anything to tell us with regard to future business? I understand that the Motion of the noble Lord, Lord Banbury, will be taken to-morrow. Can the noble and learned Viscount tell us whether any arrangements have been made with regard to the Tariff Bill—as to when it will come up to this House and what the procedure will be when it arrives?


My Lords, as the noble Lord opposite says, to-morrow Lord I Banbury's Motion will be taken—a Vote of Censure on the Government. My noble friend Lord Lovat has a question on the Paper for Thursday about the League of Nations. That concludes the business for this week. I am afraid I cannot say exactly what the business will be next week. There are some Bills for which I hope to get Cabinet sanction to introduce in this House, and it may be that one or two Bills will be put down for Second Reading next week, but I cannot give exact information on that until after the Cabinet meeting to-morrow. As to the Tariff Bill, I have no information at all. I do not even know when it is expected to pass in another place, and I have had no communication at all as to how long a time is to be given us to discuss it after it has passed through the other place. All I can say is that as soon as I have information I shall be most happy to tell the noble Lord.

House adjourned at twenty minutes past four o'clock.
