§ 3.8 p.m.
§ LORD SHEPHERD
My Lords, it has been arranged through the usual channels that we should adjourn during pleasure this afternoon from four to six o'clock. It is hoped to be able to conclude our business this evening, after we have reassembled at six o'clock, by 7.30 p.m. We had a very late sitting yesterday, and it is felt it is unfair to ask the House to sit after dinner again this evening without notice. I should add that there will be a formal Sitting of the House tomorrow for the purpose of receiving the National Insurance Bill from another place. This will be at an hour which will be arranged later in the day.
