Mr. E. Smith

My hon. Friends and I do not desire to move this Amendment, in view of the fact that we have had a fairly long Debate on the other Amendments and also that my hon. Friend the Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) and other hon. Members wish to raise another matter on the Motion for the Adjournment.

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Bill reported, without Amendment; to be read the Third time To-morrow.
