CHRISTMAS ADJOURNMENT (DATE) (Hansard, 12 November 1951)
HC Deb 12 November 1951 vol 493 c650
Mr. Crookshank

It may be for the convenience of the House if I state that the Government hope that it will be possible to dispose of all necessary and urgent business in time to adjourn on Friday, 7th December, and we shall propose that the House do meet again after Christmas on Tuesday, 29th January.

As the House is aware, arrangements already exist for the House to be recalled to meet at an earlier date should the public interest so require.

Mr. C. R. Attlee

The right hon. Gentleman will realise that we are not acquiescing in these dates, but, as the matter is to be debated fully tomorrow, I do not press the question on this statement.

Mr. Crookshank

No, but I thought it would be convenient for the House to know what was likely to happen.

Sir Herbert Williams

Would it not also be of interest to note that on 2nd August we adjourned for 10 weeks?
