HC Deb 15 July 1952 vol 503 cc2041-4

Order for consideration, as amended (in the Standing Committee), read.

6.48 p.m.

Mr. Speaker

Before we proceed with the Bill, perhaps I may say that I have considered very carefully the Motion for re-committal which stands on the Order Paper. As in similar cases in the past, I have had to consider the Amendments in respect of which it is sought to recommit the Bill. I have come to the conclusion that the only Amendment I could select, having regard to the discussions which took place in the Committee, is the one standing in the name of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Colne Valley (Mr. Glenvil Hall) to Clause 4, page 5, line 8. If the right hon. Gentleman would confine his Motion to that Amendment I would allow that to be put to the House.

Motion made, and Question, That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the whole House in respect of the Amendment to Clause 4, page 5, line 8, standing in the name of Mr. Glenvil Hall.— put, and agreed to.

Bill immediately considered in Committee.
