§ Mr. Hayhoe
I beg to move Amendment No. 6, in page 9, line 7, leave out £200 ' and insert '£400'.
We debated this matter in Committee, where I proposed an amendment that the figure should be £500. The Minister of State produced very convincing arguments that £500 was inappropriate, but 1512 he gave an undertaking to consider £400. I understand that the amendment may well be acceptable to the Government.
We started today's proceedings on an immensely harmonious note. If the Secretary of State moved the appropriate motion after two amendments from the Opposition side of the House had been accepted by the Government, we might end the proceedings on an equally harmonious note.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Bill, as amended (in the Standing Committee), to be further considered tomorrow.
