May I ask the Leader of the House what the course of business will be during next week, and may I take this opportunity, in the name of all the Members of the House, of saying how delighted we are to see the Lord President of the Council (Mr. Balfour) back?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

On Monday we propose to take Irish Supplementary Estimates.

On Tuesday, Report of the Estimates passed yesterday, Customs and Excise Superannuation Vote I, and the Committee stages of remaining Supplementary Estimates on the Paper.

On Wednesday, Report of Outstanding Votes and the Committee stage of Supplementary Estimates, particulars of which depend on the progress made earlier.

On Thursday and Friday we hope to take the Consolidated Fund Bill, so that the Royal Assent may be given to it on Monday, and, if time permit, other Supplementary Estimates, which I will announce later.

Ordered, That the proceedings on the Irish Free State (Agreement) Bill have precedence this day of the Business of Supply."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]
