May I ask the Prime Minister whether, on the third Sitting Day, there might be an extension of time for the Second Reading of the Workmen's Compensation Bill, and whether it would be possible at an early stage to arrange a Debate on the food situation in India?

We have a good deal of Business to get through before we rise. I should be more inclined to think it would be convenient to have that Debate, which certainly should take place, in the new Session. The measures that can be taken in India are being taken, but they all take some time to put into operation. I am inclined to think that it would be more convenient to wait, although the Government endeavour as much as possible to fall in with the wishes of the House.

I do not want to peg out all our time. I will consult with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the subject, but I must not be understood to be making any promises.

Can the Prime Minister give a guarantee to the House that extended time will be given for the Committee stage of the Wage-earners' Income Tax Bill, as some of the Amendments are likely to take a good deal of time?

It would be better to await some of the discussions which are to proceed between the authorities concerned.
