§ LORD PONSONBY OF SHULBREDE
My Lords, perhaps the noble Marquess the Leader of the House would be good enough to inform us what the course of business will be next week before the Recess?
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (THE MARQUESS OF LONDONDERRY)
My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord for putting this question, and I will endeavour to give him all the information which is in my possession. I suggest that your Lordships should meet at three o'clock every day next week except on Friday, on which day, as your Lordships are aware, the House will meet in the morning for the adjournment before the Recess. On Monday there will be the Second Reading of the Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) (No. 2) Bill, and the House of Commons Disqualification (Declaration of Law) Bill. We are proposing to take the Second Reading of the British. Sugar (Subsidy) Bill on Tuesday next instead of on Monday as was originally proposed. The reason for this will no doubt be appreciated by noble Lords. There is a statement to be made in another place on the same day. On Thursday there will be consideration of Amendments which have been made in another place to the Restriction of Ribbon Development Bill. During the week several Motions which I think will be of great interest to your Lordships' House will be discussed. That is the outline of the business which it is pro- 850 posed to take next week. I do not know if the noble Lord wishes to ask any further question in regard to it.
§ THE MARQUESS OF LONDONDERRY
My Lords, I beg to move that Standing Order No. XXXIX be considered in order to its being dispensed with for the purpose of passing the Housing (Scotland) Bill through its remaining stages.
§ Moved, That Standing Order No. XXXIX be considered in order to its being dispensed with for the purpose of passing the Housing (Scotland) Bill through its remaining stages.—(The Marquess of Londonderry.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and ordered accordingly.
