HC Deb 12 June 1967 vol 748 c264
The Chairman

The Question is, That the Clause—

Mrs. Thatcher

On a point of order. I understood that Amendment No. 142 was selected, Sir Eric. My hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Mr. Costain), who put it down, is not here, but I wonder whether I may move it, because it looks to me as though it is one which has to be made. It speaks for itself.

Amendment proposed: No. 142, in page 44, line 3, to leave out 'subsection' and insert 'section'.—[Mrs. Thatcher.]

The Solicitor-General (Sir Dingle Foot)

I have pleasure in accepting the Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 42 and 43 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Mr. Iain Macleod (Enfield, West)

I beg to move, That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again.

The Committee has got through 18 Clauses and four Schedules today. That is a remarkable day's work, and this is the obvious point at which to break off and go to bed. I hope the Chief Secretary will accept the Motion.

Mr. Diamond

I accept the offer made by the right hon. Gentleman, and offer thanks to him and his colleagues for the way in which our debates have been conducted today.

Question put and agreed to.

Committee report Progress; to sit again Tomorrow.
