HL Deb 03 December 1935 vol 99 c40

My Lords, I should like to ask the Leader of the House whether he is able to give any information as to the business for this week.


My Lords, in reply to the noble Lord, to-morrow there are two introductions, after which there will follow a formal Motion relating to the trial of Lord de Clifford. After that my noble friend Lord Strickland has two Motions on the Paper. On Thursday, I understand, there are further formal steps regarding the trial of Lord de Clifford. There are also a Motion on the machinery to be set up with regard to Orders under the Government of India Act, and the Second Reading of the Bill that my noble friend the Marquess of Zetland has just presented. It might perhaps be for the convenience of the House if I mentioned, so far as it exists on a rather provisional basis, the business proposed for next week. On Tuesday, December 10, there will be the Committee of the Bill relating to the Government of India Act, followed by a Motion regarding personnel of the special India Act Committee proposed to be set up this week and a further Motion by my noble friend Lord Strickland which also. I think, appears on the Paper. On Wednesday, it is proposed to take the Third Reading of the Government of India (Reprinting) Bill. I think the noble Lord, Lord Marley, has a Motion for that day on the coal industry, and my noble friend Lord Kilmaine has a Motion on the electrification of the Southern Railway. Noble Lords will recognise that the business for next week is to some extent provisional but at present it stands as I have stated.

House adjourned at twenty-five minutes past six o'clock.
