§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will move to refer the Covent Garden Market (Financial Provisions) Bill to a Select Committee.
§ Mr. Strang
The Government have carefully considered the suggestion put forward by my hon. Friend the Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing), but have decided in the light of all the circumstances not to propose that the Standing Committee set up to consider this Bill be discharged and replaced by a Select Committee.
