The Business will be as follows:
First Sitting Day.— Second Reading of the Securities (Validation) Bill; Committee and remaining stages of the India (Federal Courts Judges) Bill [Lords]; Committee stage of the Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill; and Report and Third Reading of the War Orphans Bill and Patents and Designs Bill [Lords].
Second Sitting Day.—The Adjournment will be moved, and a Debate will take place on the Shipping situation. It will be necessary, in order to do justice to the subject, that the Debate on Shipping should take place in Secret Session.
Third Sitting Day.—Report and Third Reading of the Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill; and of the Landlord and Tenant (Requisitioned Land) Bill.
Naturally, I should not have submitted the list to the King without having examined all those aspects. There are still some minor details which require clarification, and I think it would be better if I made a short statement to the House on the First Sitting Day, defining the duties of the Minister. At the same time, a White Paper will be issued.
