Alert me about debates like this

I beg to move, That, until the end of the Session, no Public Bills, other than Government Bills, be introduced, and no ballot be taken for determining the precedence of such Bills. Perhaps I may be allowed to say a word or two on the three Motions dealing with procedure which stand in my name on the Paper. In the first two, we are simply asking that the full time of the House shall be given to public business throughout the Session. As every Member of the House knows, this Session has been called for a special purpose, and, as there is very little time in which to get that work done, I venture to hope there will be no opposition to these Motions.

The arrangement suggested in the third Motion was tried in the last Parliament and found to work successfully, and I do not think there will be any difference of opinion upon it.

With reference to the third Resolution, I think there will be no difficulty. I believe the arrangement was tried in the last Parliament, and met with the general consent of the House. "With reference, however, to the other two, I am afraid I cannot facilitate the right hon. Gentleman. We do not know how long the Session

may last, but, whether it be long or short, the rights of private Members must be maintained. The right hon. Gentleman knows that we shall offer no objection to the quickest possible despatch of the Irish Bills, but there are other things that may crop up Yesterday, for instance, it was suggested that there might be some action taken regarding the Rent Restrictions Act. That can only be met with the strongest opposition on this side of the House. Moreover, we have not yet been put in possession of the. Government's unemployment policy. That may require very considerable discussion, and, if it be not forthcoming, that discussion may entail the use of their privileges by private Members in putting down Resolutions. Lausanne, a very important matter, is going on from day to day, and at any moment something may arise which would necessitate the intervention of the Opposition. We might require discussion, and we shall certainly, in those circumstances, be unwilling to forego any of the rights we have under the ordinary Standing Orders of the House. I regret, therefore, that I must offer opposition to the first and second Resolutions.

Question put, That, until the end of the Session, no Public Bills, other than Government Bills, be introduced, and no ballot be taken for determining the precedence of such Bills.

The House divided: Ayes, 239; Noes, 135.
