§ 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.]
§ 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.
