§ VISCOUNT HAILSHAM
My Lords, before the House adjourns it might perhaps be convenient if I mention the business for next week. On Tuesday we shall have a comparatively light day 698 because that day was to some extent reserved for the event of the debate on the Second Reading of the Petroleum (Production) Bill running into a second day. We shall, however, on Tuesday have to take the Second Reading of the Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill and the Committee stages of the Overseas Trade Bill and the Mines (Working Facilities) Bill. On Wednesday there are two Motions on the Paper, standing in the names of my noble friends Lord Conway and Lord Meston, and also the Second Reading of the Bill in charge of my noble friend Lord Eltisley to amend the Firearms Act, 1920, which has come, I think, from another place. We propose to ask your Lordships to take the Second Reading of the Betting and Lotteries Bill on Thursday. The Committee stage of the Electricity (Supply) Bill was also put down for Thursday, but I understand it is likely to take some little time. Therefore I think it would probably be more convenient for your Lordships' House that the Betting and Lotteries Bill should be the first Order on Thursday. Then I am afraid we shall have to begin sitting on Mondays and take the Committee stage of the Electricity (Supply) Bill on Monday, April 30.
§ House adjourned at twenty-five minutes past six o'clock.
