Is it the intention of the Government to take the Report stage of the Representation of the People Bill, which was dealt with so long ago in Committee?

I am afraid that there is no chance of returning to that subject before we rise in August.

I am not yet able to make an announcement on the point.

Ordered, That the Housing (Financial Provisions) (re-committed) Bill may be considered, at this day's Sitting, in Committee and, as amended, on re-committal by the House, notwithstanding the practice of the House with regard to the interval between the various stages of such a Bill. Ordered, That other Government Business have precedence this day of the Business of Supply. Ordered, That the Proceedings on Government Business be exempted at this day's Sitting from the provisions of the Standing Order (Sittings of the House)."—[Mr. Clynes.]
