Deb 25 July 1935 vol 98 c871

Report from the Special Orders Committee, That they have examined the Amendment as required by the Standing Orders of the House; that in their opinion the Amendment raises questions of policy and principle similar to those agreed to by the House when approving the Bacon Marketing Scheme, 1933; that the Amendment is founded on precedent, inasmuch as an Amendment of a Scheme has already been submitted for the approval of Parliament, under the Agricultural Marketing Acts, 1931 and 1933, although this Amendment dealt with another agricultural product; that in the opinion of the Committee the Amendment cannot be passed by the House without special attention, but that no further inquiry is necessary before the House proceeds to a decision on the Resolution to approve the said Amendment:

Read, and ordered to lie on the Table.
