HL Deb 06 March 1946 vol 139 cc1149-50

My Lords, I should like, if I may, to take this opportunity to inform the House that, after consultations through the usual channels, it has been decided that we should conclude the debate on foreign affairs to-morrow rather than proceed some way with it and then adjourn it for conclusion to another day.

In order to meet the general convenience, the Kitchen Committee have arranged for dinner to be served in the restaurant from seven o'clock onwards on Thursday evening. There will be no adjournment of the debate for dinner, and it will greatly assist the staff in the restaurant, and convenience your Lordships yourselves, if those who propose to dine here to-morrow will kindly notify the hour to the restaurant in advance. In particular it will facilitate matters if times can be generally arranged, so that The service of dinners can be continuous, rather than concentrated within a single short period. I am sure I may count on the co-operation of your Lordships.
