§ As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.
§ 12.4 pm
§ Mr. Clement Freud (Isle of Ely)
On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. We now have two hours and a little over 20 minutes in which to debate this Bill, to which there are 126 amendments, 77 of them originating from the Government. Would it be possible for the Under-Secretary of State to explain whether it will be a constructive debate or simply a wrecking move?
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Bernard Weatherill)
Order. Points of order must be directed to the Chair. The Under-Secretary of State coould not possibly answer that question.
