Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 31st October 1969.
May I first make two announcements? I think that it will be for the convenience of the House if I announce now that I have selected the two Amendments in the names of the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the apposition and his right hon. Friends, one for Monday on economic affairs, and one for Tuesday on housing.
For today's debate, twenty-two hon. Members have so far indicated their wish to speak. I regret that it will be impossible to call them all. I may be able to call a fair number, but only if speeches are brief.
