§ Order for consideration, as amended (in the Standing Committee), read.
§ 8.50 p.m.
§ Mr. John Rankin (Glasgow, Govan)
On a point of order, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. There was an understanding, I believe, that if the Charities Bill should uncharitably take more than what appeared to be a reasonable time, this Bill, although the business was exempted, would not proceed too late. We are very late in starting discussion on this Bill and I therefore ask the Minister to tell us what his intentions are and if he means to complete the Report stage and the Third Reading tonight.
§ Mr. Deputy-Speaker
I call the Minister to move his Motion.
Bill recommitted to a Committee of the whole House in respect of the Amendment to Clause 5, page 7, line 45, standing on the Notice Paper in the name of Mr. Sandys.—[Mr. Rippon.]
§ Bill immediately considered in Committee.
