Business of the House

– in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 24th July 1951.

Alert me about debates like this

Ordered: That this day Business other than the Business of Supply may be taken before Ten o'Clock."—[The Prime Minister.]

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Proceedings on the Price Control and other Orders (Indemnity) Bill, the Guardianship and Maintenance of Infants (No. 2) Bill [Lords], the Motion standing in the name of Mr. Paget relating to the Complaint of the honourable Member for Bolton, West, and the Motions standing in the name of Mr. Coldrick relating to the Kitchen and Refreshment Rooms (House of Commons) be exempted, at this day's Sitting, from the provisions of Standing Order No. 1 (Sittings of the House)."—[The Prime Minister.]

Before the Question is put, could the Leader of the House tell us when he expects we shall commence this other business? Will it be before ten o'clock?

I should think it is unlikely that we shall start it before ten o'clock. I imagine that the debate on the Education Estimates will run until then.

Question put, and agreed to.
