§ Mr. RAMSAY MacDONALD
I gave notice of a private Question to the Prime Minister regarding the Cinematograph Films Bill, but I see that he is not in his place. In view of the importance of this 1858 Bill now that it has been published, and in view of the great public interest which is being taken in it, will the Government change their programme as announced last Wednesday, and give the House more time to discuss it on a Second Reading?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Commander Eyres Monsell)
We shall take the Bill as the first Order to-morrow, and then, if we see that more time be required for its discussion, I have no doubt at all that we shall be able to accommodate the House in that matter.
§ Mr. MacDONALD
Does that mean that if the Debate is still going on at 8.15, there will be no Closure?
§ Commander EYRES MONSELL
Well, it means that, if there be any considerable desire to continue the Debate in the House.
