Mr. FRAN CE
With regard to the procedure in the Debate this afternoon, and in view of the fact that there are several Amendments, I should like to know the course which you intend to take, Mr. Speaker, in regard to calling the Amendments?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I am entirely in the hands of hon. Members. If they desire to move Amendments, I cannot stop them from doing so, even if I wished to do so. In this case I should think that a direct negative of the Motion would enable hon. Members to discuss the subject generally and fully.
§ Mr. ACLAND
As the Member having his name down for the first Amendment, I may say that I have come to exactly the same conclusion as you, Mr. Speaker, and I am not going to try to move the Amendment standing in my name, in order that a decision may be come to on a, direct negative.
§ Mr. EVELYN CECIL
As the next Amendment stands in my name, I should like to give the same assurance to the hon. Member.
