§ Amendment proposed: No. 60, in page 46, line 12, after 'registered', insert 'as a trade union'.—[The Solicitor-General.]
§ Question put, That the Amendment be made:—
§ The House proceeded to a Division—
§ Mr. Kevin McNamara (Kingston upon Hull, North)
(seated and covered): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Can you find some way of getting the Government to stop this farce? We are being forced as a matter of principle to impress our views on the Government by dividing on an Amendment which owing to the printing none of us can read unless he has a research degree in Sanskrit or some other language?
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Robert Grant-Ferris)
I notice a slight misprint in my Notice Paper, but it is easily put right. I do not think the hon. Gentleman raises a very serious point of order. May I take this opportunity very humbly to congratulate the House on its good humour?
§ The House having divided: Ayes 202, Noes 122.
§ [For Division List 302 see col. 741.]
