Volume 245: debated on Thursday 20 November 1930

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what will be the Business for next week?

On Monday, the Motion conferring on the Chairman of the Standing Committee on the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill the power to select Amendments; and, after that, the Committee stage of the Education (School Attendance) Bill.

Tuesday: The Education (School Attendance) Bill, Committee.

Wednesday: Private Members' day.

Thursday: Education (School Attendance) Bill, Committee; Cunard (Insurance) Agreement Bill, Committee.

Friday: Private Members' day.

On any day, if time permits, other Orders may be taken.

I notice on the Order Paper a Motion by which it is proposed that we should sit after Eleven o'clock to-night. Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us what business he proposes to take after Eleven?

Division No. 13.]

We do not wish to continue the Committee stage of the Education (School Attendance) Bill beyond about Eleven o'clock, but we want to get the Money Resolution for the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill, and the Second Reading of the Cunard (Insurance) Agreement Bill. The latter Measure is very urgent in view of the employment that it will provide.

Cannot the right hon. Gentleman say anything about the Trade Disputes Bill?

I apologise to the right hon. Gentleman for having forgotten to anticipate his usual request.

With reference to the Motion which stands on the Order Paper in the name of the Prime Minister, may I call your attention to the fact, Mr. Speaker, that it is in two parts, and ask you to put the two parts separately?


"That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. P. Snowden.]

Motion made, and Question put,

"That the Proceedings on Government Business be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. P. Snowden.]

The House divided: Ayes, 269; Noes, 121.
