May I ask how far the Leader of the House wishes us to proceed to-day with the business, and what business will be taken to-morrow, if it is necessary to sit on Friday, and also what business will be taken next week?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
As regards to-day, I should like to take all the Bills on the Order Paper down to No. 6 (Supply), and, in addition, we require to get Orders Nos. 12 (Trading With the Enemy (Amendment) Bill), No. 13 (Parliament and Local Elections Bill), and No. 16 (Education—Scotland—Grants). That looks a formidable list, but I think it is possible they may be taken to-day, and on the chance of that I shall not move the Resolution that we sit to-morrow until the close of business this evening.
As regards next week, on Monday we shall take the Debate on the Motion of the hon. Member for East Mayo (Government of Ireland);
On Tuesday, Supply, the Shipbuilding Vote;
On Wednesday, Supply, the Board of Trade Vote, on which hon. Members can deal with the Coal Order, and, if time permit, the Foreign Office and Colonial Office Vote;
On Thursday, we shall take the Committee stage of the Vote of Credit; and
On Friday, the Report stage of the same Vote.
§ Mr. G. TERRELL
Does the Shipbuilding Vote on Tuesday give an opportunity for the discussion of the national shipyards?
Mr. DUNDAS WHITE
Is it intended to take the Second Reading of the Tithes Bill before the Recess?
§ Mr. D. MASON
Has the Leader of the House any further information to give with regard to the strike at Coventry?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
No, Sir; I have none to give, and I do not think there is any to give. I had a discussion with the Minister of Munitions this morning.
§ Ordered, "That the Proceedings on the Juries Bill [Lords], the Corn Production (Amendment) Bill [Lords], the Government War Obligations Bill, Public Works Loans [Remission of Debts] Report, and the Public Works Loans Bill have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. Bonar Law.]
§ Ordered, "That Government Business be not interrupted this night under the Standing Order (Sittings of the House), and may be entered upon at any hour although opposed."—[Mr. Bonar Law.]
