asked the Prime Minister if he can see his way to giving facilities for the passage through all its stages this Session of the Asylums Officers' Superannuation Act Amendment Bill, introduced by the hon. Member for Roxburghhire?

Before the right hon. Gentleman answers the question, is he aware that this is the Bill of the Asylums Workers' Association, which looks after the material and moral welfare of persons who are employed in asylums?

The Government are in favour of the principle of the Bill referred to, but I fear it will not be possible to pass it through all its remaining stages this Session.

Can the Prime Minister not make an exception in favour of this Bill which helps a deserving class, and which is non-contentious?

I am told that there is some opposition to it, and I very much regret that there should be.
