§ EARL FORTESCUE
My Lords, I have a short statement to make on forthcoming business. It will be necessary to sit formally to-morrow, Friday, in order to receive the Commons Amendments to the Enemy Property Bill which originated in your Lordships' House. We shall consider those Amendments on Tuesday next, after which we shall take the Notices which already stand upon the Paper for that day—Lord Stamp's Bill amending the Protection of Animals legislation, and Lord Luke's Motion on the provision of playing fields in the new towns. On Wednesday, we shall debate the White Paper on British Guiana. On Thursday morning we propose to meet at 11 o'clock, when a Royal Commission is expected to deal with Bills awaiting Royal Assent, after which Parliament is expected to be prorogued, prior to the opening of a new Session of Parliament by the Queen in person on Tuesday, November 3.
