§ Considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the Third time."
Mr. EDMUND HARVEY
Might we have some assurance from the Government with regard to the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Bodmin (Mr. Foot) last night, as, to the need for consolidating this Bill, as it is quite unintelligible by itself'? It is intended for the benefit of working men; and until a Consolidating Bill has been brought forward, it will remain unintelligible.
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Rhys Davies)
The Government appreciate the point raised by my hon. Friend and the hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Foot) yesterday, but I hope the hon. Member will not press me to-night, at any rate, to promise any consolidating legislation. The matter is in the mind of the Government, and will receive attention in due course.
