HL Deb 04 February 1936 vol 99 cc417-8

My Lords, before the House adjourns, might I ask the noble Leader of the House if he could give us some idea of the business for next week?


My Lords, I understand that to-morrow there are Introductions, and I think your Lordships would wish to have the opportunity of paying a tribute to the memory of the late Lord Reading. There is also a question by Lord Kilmaine on the Southern Railway electric services, and I understand that the noble Lord who has just asked me about business is himself putting down a Question in regard to the situation in Shanghai. I understand also that to-morrow we may expect to receive a Bill from another place dealing
