HL Deb 02 May 1950 vol 167 cc78-9

6.39 p.m.


My Lords, before the House adjourns, I have an important announcement to make about our Business to-morrow. At the request of my noble and learned friend on the Woolsack, to whom will fall the duty of replying to the Motion of the noble and gallant Viscount, Lord Trenchard, on the carrying out of the recommendations of the Oaksey Report on the conditions of employment, et cetera, of the Police Force, which is first Business to-morrow, the noble Lord, Lord Teynham, has kindly consented to postpone until Tuesday next, May 9, the consideration of his Motion for the annulment of the Coal Industry Nationalisation (Superannuation) Regulations, 1950, which now stands upon the Paper to be taken also to-morrow (and which will also be dealt with by my noble and learned friend). With your Lordship's permission, we propose that next Tuesday Lord Teynham's Motion should be given precedence over the other Business now standing on the Order Paper for that day.
