HC Deb 15 July 1935 vol 304 cc863-4

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."

9.14 p.m.


As this is quite a new subject, about which we know so little, and as there is no possible chance of amending the Bill, and as other business is waiting to be dealt with, perhaps it will serve the purpose of the Committee if I intimate to the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Agriculture that we do not propose to prolong the proceedings this evening on the Committee stage, but we shall claim the right to say a last word on the Third Reading. I think that this pretty well represents the opinion of my hon. Friends on these benches, and of hon. and right hon. Gentlemen below the Gangway, as long as ample opportunity is provided on the Third Reading.


I wish to add that on the Third Reading I intend to accept the challenge of the right hon. Gentleman given on another Bill, and I shall certainly go into the Division Lobby against the subsidy.

Remaining Clauses ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedule agreed to.

Bill reported, without Amendment; to be read the Third time upon Wednesday.
