HC Deb 11 February 1977 vol 925 cc1928-9

Order for Second Reading read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

Hon. Members


Mr. Michael Grylls (Surrey, North-West)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Did I hear aright that this socially desirable Bill, which has all-party support, was objected to by the Government?

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Oscar Murton)

That is irrelevant. It is not yet 4 o'clock. I see that it is just 4 o'clock now.

It being Four o'clock, the debate stood adjourned.

Debate to be resumed upon Friday next.
