Considered in Committee.

[Mr. LAURENCE HARDY in the Chair.]

Adjourned Debate resumed on Question proposed [26th November], " That it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys to be provided by Parliament of such additional sums as may be required for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to amend the Acts relating to National Health Insurance." —[Sir E Cornwall.]

Question again proposed.


I object.

Sir EDWIN CORNWALL (Comptroller of the Household)

I hope my hon. Friend will allow this Resolution to go through. It was carried without a Division on Friday, and I hope the hon. Gentleman will not press his objection.


I am sorry that I must object also. Several hon. Members desire to speak on this resolution, among them the hon. Member for Hexham, who particularly wishes to discuss the matter.

It being after Eleven o'clock, and objection being taken to further proceedings, the Chairman left the Chair to make his report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again To-morrow.

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.
