HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 c1962

Considered in Committee [Progress, 23rd June].

[Dr. HORACE KING in the Chair]

4.5 p.m.

The Chairman

Before I call the hon. Member who is to move the first of this last series of new Clauses, as this is the last Committee day on the Finance Bill, with its long sittings and its many Amendments, I think that both sides of the Committee would like me to commend the servants of the House for their very faithful service during the long Committee stage of the Bill, especially the OFFICIAL REPORTERS, for dealing and coping with highly complex debates.

Above all, I would wish to commend the printers, who, night by night, have had to cope with the Notice Paper.

Hon. Members

Hear, hear.

Mr. Edward Heath (Bexley)

May I support you in what you have said, Dr. King. I am sure that they will be preparing themselves for a similar time on the Report stage.

The Chairman

No comment.
