HC Deb 23 June 1965 vol 714 c1768

Considered in Committee [Progress, 22nd June].

[Dr. HORACE KING in the Chair]

4.5 p.m.

The Chairman

Before I call the first new Clause I should like to thank hon. and right hon. Gentlemen for their unfailing courtesy during the long sittings on the Bill of which we now approach the later, I shall not say the last, stage, especially when I have been so unpopular as not to select Amendments or new Clauses which they would have liked the Committee to discuss.

I have a final suggestion to make. That is that we add to the new Clauses I have grouped around new Clause No. 19, new Clause No. 52—"Claimant depending on services of daughter"—if the Opposition have no objection. If the Opposition object, I shall withdraw that suggestion.

Mr. Edward Heath (Bexley)

I think that my hon. and right hon. Friends would have no objection at all, Dr. King. I presume that we would still maintain the right of having a Division?

The Chairman

Oh, yes, always with the right of a Division on new Clause No. 52 if need be. New Clause No. 52 is not quite closely related to the other group, but in my mind it is in some way connected.

The first new Clause I have selected is No. 8.
