May I ask the Leader of the House whether he has any statement to make about business?

Yes, Sir.

We do not propose to proceed with the Pests Bill [Lords] on Friday, but we shall take the Second Reading of the Food and Drugs Amendment Bill [Lords] already announced for that day.

May I ask my right hon. Friend whether any statement is to be made about Geneva? Can he tell me how far Geneva is from Munich?

When are we to get the Pests Bill, in which there is a great deal of interest?

I could not give a date now. I announced that two Bills would be Liken on Friday and all I am saying now is that the Food and Drugs Bill will be the first Order.

Is not the delay in introducing the Pests Bill due to the filibustering attitude adopted by the Opposition?

Can the right hon. Gentleman say that the Pests Bill will definitely be taken next week or before we rise for the Recess?

I shall deal with that when I announce the business for next week. I do that tomorrow.


"That this day Business other than the Business of Supply may be taken before Ten o'clock."—[Mr. Crookshank.]

Proceedings on Government Business exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of Standing Order No. 1 (Sittings of the House).—[ Mr. Crookshank.]
