HL Deb 08 November 1945 vol 137 c816

had the following Notice on the Paper: To call attention to the need for revision and extension of the Government's schemes for securing civilian employment for officers on the termination of their service, with special reference to the position of officers over 45 years of age; and to move for Papers. The noble Marquess said: My Lords, avoiding, if possible, the conventional phrase, I will only say that after the exhaustive and perhaps exhausting debate which your Lordships have had on the Bill which has just been under discussion, it would be unfair to those noble Lords who offered me their support, that we should embark at this time on a discussion of what is, I hope, an important Motion. Therefore, with the permission of the House, I would ask leave not to move the Motion to-day, expresing the hope that it may find a place at a later date.
