HL Deb 30 April 1940 vol 116 cc223-4

4.31 p.m.


My Lords, I understand that at the request of my right honourable friend the Minister for Mines Lord Addison has postponed the Motion he has on the Paper for to-morrow relating to the Coal Commission. As that will not now appear on the Order Paper to-morrow, we have no business down for to-morrow. On the other hand I am not in a position at this moment to say whether the Government will be making a statement to-morrow or on Thursday. I think there is likely to be one on the one day or the other, but I am not yet sure which. Therefore, although we have nothing on the Paper for to-morrow, none the less I suggest that we should meet at four o'clock in case there is a statement to be made.

House adjourned at twenty-eight minutes before five o'clock.
