§ MR. CRAIG SELLAR (Lanarkshire, Partick)
I ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will, after Easter, give facilities for the discussion of this Bill, which is the outcome of the deliberations of a Joint Committee of both Houses of Parliament?
MR. J. MORLEY (Newcastle)
I can confirm what the hon. Member has said, as to the Bill being the outcome of the deliberations of a Select Committee.
§ SIR J. MOWBRAY (Oxford University)
Perhaps the First Lord of the Treasury could arrange for the matter to be discussed some Tuesday in May.
§ SIR J. PEASE (Durham, Barnard Castle)
I would point out that there was only a small majority of the Committee in favour of the principle of the Bill.
§ *MR. W. H. SMITH
I am aware of the importance of the subject, and should be glad if the Bill could be discussed, but I am afraid that I cannot enter into any engagement in the matter. I hope, however, that an opportunity will be found for proposing the Second Reading in the course of the Session.
