12.15 p.m.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Bevin)

I beg to move, in page 9, line 29, at end, insert: including, so far as it considers necessary, the hearing of oral evidence. This Amendment is moved in order to meet the wishes of hon. Members which were expressed during the Committee stage.

Mr. Erskine-Hill (Edinburgh, North)

I should like to take the opportunity of thanking the Minister for this Amendment which, I think, does meet a great many of the points about which I was speaking during the Committee stage.

Amendment agreed to.
