The Business will be as follows:
First Sitting Day.—Second Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill. A Debate on the Coal Situation will take place.
Second Sitting Day.—Committee and remaining stages of the Consolidated Fund Bill. A Debate on Agriculture will take place.
Third Sitting Day.—Motions to approve the draft Orders in Council proposed to be made under the Government of Burma Act. Committee and remaining stages of the Sugar Industry Bill.
With regard to the Business for the First Sitting Day, will it be possible to suspend the Rule, because the Debate is on an interesting subject on which many hon. Members wish to speak?
May I ask whether the Government propose to make any statement in the near future on the report of Mr. Justice Bucknill in regard to the passage of the German ships through the Channel?
I cannot give an undertaking. The position is that a fuller report by air mail has been asked for from Major-General Bennett; when that arrives such an arrangement might be possible, but I cannot give an undertaking.
