§ Transfer of Sums from Road Fund to Exchequer.
§ 17. "That the sum of seven million pounds shall be transferred to the Exchequer from the Road Fund."
§ First Resolution, read a Second time.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."
§ Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
I have down an Amendment to leave out the word "fourpence" and to insert instead thereof the words "one penny." I think the House will agree that it would not he to the best advantage if we were to debate this Motion at length to-night, and, in view of the over-riding national 180 circumstances, I do not propose to move my Amendment, but I give notice that I shall do so on the Committee stage of the Finance Bill.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Second Resolution agreed to.
§ Resolved, "That the further consideration of the Resolutions be adjourned."— [Commander Eyres Monsell.]
§ Third and subsequent Resolutions to be considered to-morrow.
