5.21 p.m.


My Lords, I beg to ask my noble friend the Leader of the House whether he can make a statement on the business for next week.


My Lords, next Tuesday, August 20, there will be a debate on the progress of the war, following a Government statement on the Motion of my noble friend Lord Addison. We shall expect to receive the Finance Bill and the Isle of Man (Customs) Bill that afternoon. Arrangements are being made for the circulation to your Lordships, in advance of its First Reading stage here, of the Finance Bill in the form in which it will have left another place. On Wednesday, August 21, we shall take the Finance Bill and the Isle of Man (Customs) Bill through all their stages. Lord Clwyd has on the paper for that day a question concerning an interned person of German nationality. On Thursday, August 22, the House will meet at twelve o'clock noon for a Royal Commission. On Tuesday and Wednesday the House will meet at the usual hour of four o'clock.

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