HC Deb 03 March 1937 vol 321 c436

Order for Third Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the Third time."

Mr. George Hall

Is not the Minister going to give us any explanation with regard to the changes which have taken place in this Bill?

The Minister of Health (Sir Kingsley Wood)

There have been no changes in the Bill.

Mr. Hall

It is very unusual to pass the Third Reading of a Bill without some statement on behalf of the Government.

Sir K. Wood

I shall be very glad to make a short statement. The Bill passed through its Committee stage without Amendment and I shall see that any undertakings given are carried out. I understood from the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Wakefield (Mr. Greenwood) that it was the general desire that the Bill should now take the usual course, and I hope it will now receive its Third Reading.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read the Third time, and passed.
