§ As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.3.38 pm
§ Mr. John Smith (Lanarkshire, North)
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I should like to make a minor point about the selection of amendments. Amendments Nos. 6 and 7, in the names of myself and my hon. Friends, are grouped together. It so happens that amendment No. 54 raises the same point. I think it would be for the convenience of the House if amendment No. 54 were grouped with amendments Nos. 6 and 7. I understand that the Government have no objection to my proposal, which should shorten our debate.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Trade (Mr. Norman Tebbit)
I beg to move,That the order in which proceedings are taken shall be New Clauses 5 to 14 and 16 and 17, amendments to clauses 1 to 9, amendments to schedules 1 and 2 and to part I of schedule 3, new clauses 3, 4, 15, 18, 2 and 1, amendments to clauses 10 to 25, new schedules, amendments to part II of schedule 3 and amendments to the title.I think that this will be for the convenience of the House. The wording of the motion is different from that of the motion on the Notice Paper. The alteration has the agreement of the Opposition.
§ Question put and agreed to.
