§ Mr. THORNE
May I ask the Patronage Secretary whether he is aware that this Bill, which is being presented to-day by my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdare (Mr. G. Hall), is an agreed Bill as regards both employers and workmen, and that there is no opposition from the Ministry of Transport; and whether, in these circumstances, the Government will give facilities for the passage of the Bill?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Captain Margesson)
I was not in possession of the information which the hon. Member has just given me, but, if no objection is raised to the Bill at the time allotted to private Members after Eleven, the Bill will receive a Second Reading by assent. The Government will not object to it.
