§ Considered in Committee.
§ [Sir ERIC FLETCHER in the Chair]
§ 4.8 p.m.
§ The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. James Callaghan)
I beg to move,That the Bill be considered in the following order: Clause 1, Schedules 1 to 5, Clauses 2 to 5, Schedules 6, 7 and 8, Clause 6, Schedule 9, Clauses 7 to 19, Schedule 10, Clauses 20 to 23, Schedule 11, Clause 24, Schedule 12, Clauses 25 to 30, Schedule 13, Clause 31, Schedule 14, Clause 32, Schedule 15, remaining Clauses, new Clauses, Schedule 16, new Schedules.This Motion has been tabled to meet the convenience of the Committee. Its major purpose is to ensure that the Schedules of the Bill are considered immediately following the Clauses to which they relate. It means that we will be able to concentrate our minds upon one subject at one time, which is probably as much as most of us can ever achieve, anyway.
§ Mr. Joel Barnett (Heywood and Royton)
On a point of order. I had understood that we were to have a voluntary agreement, that there was to be a voluntary arrangement as to a timetable of the Bill. If there is any such voluntary agreement, perhaps other hon. Members of the Committee might be informed.
§ Question put and agreed to.
