HC Deb 09 November 1948 vol 457 c1389

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be referred to the Scottish Standing Committee."—[Mr. Woodburn.]

Lieut.-Colonel Elliot (Scottish Universities)

This Motion, of course, is put without Debate, but I think it worth while mentioning that it is the first time that this procedure has been adopted, and I think it is desirable that the House should take note of that. We on our side do not propose to raise any objection to this procedure.

Question put, and agreed to.
