HL Deb 11 February 1932 vol 83 cc561-2

My Lords, may I ask the noble Viscount, the Leader of the House, to inform us as to the business for next week?


My Lords, I am glad to have an opportunity of explaining the business for next week. On Tuesday next there is a Motion, which stands in the name of my noble friend the Lord Chancellor, for the appointment of an additional Judge. There will also be taken the Committee stage of the Veterinary Surgeons (Irish Free State Agreement) Bill, and it is proposed to ask the House to take the Second Reading of the Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill—a small Bill which is going to have its First Reading now, and only deals with minor questions and matters of detail which have arisen in connection with the administration of Northern Ireland. On Wednesday it is proposed to take the Second Reading of the Dangerous Drugs Bill, which is a Bill to amend the law with regard to dangerous drugs. I think that that again is completely non-controversial. The First Reading will be taken to-day. On Thursday it is proposed to take the Second Reading of a Bill for the protection of the grey seal, which will be introduced by my noble friend Lord Strathcona, and also the Second Reading of the Chancels Repairs Bill, which has just been read a first time.
