Regarding the second part of the question, if the right hon. Gentleman will be good enough to repeat it next week, I shall then be in a position to make a statement. There are certain things that are uncertain——[Interruption.]—that is the flexibility of our English language—and until I have finished negotiations which are in hand just now I am not quite sure what drafts I may have to make upon the time of the House; but next week I hope to make a statement.

The Business for next week will be:

Monday: Supply [12th Allotted Day]. The Vote for the Treasury and subordinate Departments, which includes pro- vision of the Committee of Imperial Defence, will be put down in order to admit of a general discussion on the Defence Services of the Empire. The Committee stage of the Unemployment Insurance (No. 4) Bill will also be taken.

Tuesday: Finance Bill, Report [1st Allotted Day]. Unemployment Insurance (No. 4) Bill, Third Reading.

Wednesday: Finance Bill, Report [2nd Allotted Day].

Thursday: Finance Bill, Report [3rd Allotted Day].

Friday: Finance Bill, Third Reading.
