HC Deb 13 May 1960 vol 623 c874

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made and Question proposed, That the Bill be now read a Second time.—[Mr. A. Brown.]

3.59 p.m.

Mr. Charles Doughty (Surrey, East)

It is quite wrong that at this time of the day we should pass "on the nod" a Bill of such importance. I can only hope that on another occasion—

Mr. Leslie Hale (Oldham, West)

You wait.

Mr. Doughty

—we shall have an opportunity to discuss this important Measure in some detail. I should not like it to be allowed to go through in a somewhat perfunctory manner—

It being Four o'clock, the debate stood adjourned.

Debate to be resumed upon Friday next.
