HL Deb 07 June 1934 vol 92 cc963-4

May I ask the noble Earl, Lord Lucan, if he can tell us the business for next week?


My Lords, in reply to the noble Earl there is really very little business in addition to what has already appeared on the Order Paper. On Tuesday there is the consideration on Report of the Edinburgh Corporation Order Confirmation Bill, the Report stage of the Betting and Lotteries Bill and the Report stage of the Workmen's Compensation (Coal Mines) Bill. In addition there has been put down for Tuesday the Architects (Registration) Bill, which passed through Committee to-day, and there will also be taken then the Second Reading of the Bill which has just been read a first time, the Licensing (Permitted Hours) Bill. On Wednesday Lord Strabolgi is moving a Resolution recommending the Government to institute an immediate investigation of the monetary system. Your Lordships will see the wording of it on the Paper. There are also the Second Reading of the Adoption of Children (Workmen's Compensation) Bill and the Second Beading of the Protection of Animals (Cruelty to Dogs) (Scotland) Bill, which I think the noble Lord, Lord Amulree, is moving. On Thursday there is the Administration of Justice (Appeals) Bill in Committee, and the Committee stage of the Unemployment Bill. In addition, the noble Viscount, Lord Elibank, is asking a question of the Government as to the creation of an Imperial Air Force and the assembling of a defence conference for that purpose in London. I understand the Committee stage of the Road Traffic (Compensation for Accidents) Bill will also be taken on Thursday.

House adjourned at twenty-three minutes past seven o'clock.
