May I ask the acting Leader of the House if he has any statement to make on the Business for tomorrow?

Yes, Sir.

Conversations have taken place through the usual channels as I promised last week with regard to the arrangements for the Debate on the fuel situation which is to take place tomorrow.

The Prayer to annul the Control of Fuel (Restriction of Heating) Order which stands on the Paper in the names of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Mr. Eden) and others, will be taken as the first item of Business tomorrow. [That the Control of Fuel (Restriction of Heating) Order, 1947 (S.R. & O., 1947, No. 765), dated 25th April, 1947, a copy of which was presented on 28th April, be annulled.]

While it is for you to decide, Mr. Speaker, it would seem that the Debate on the Prayer will be restricted, and therefore, after the Motion has been disposed of, the Government propose to move the Adjournment of the House in order to admit of wider debate on the fuel situation.

On Friday, after the Burma Proclamation and Order have been dealt with, we propose to ask the House to resume and conclude the Debate on the Second Reading of the Public Offices (Site) Bill and take the Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolution.
