I beg to move to leave out the Clause.This is consequential on the passing of the new Clause which the House adopted a few moments ago.
Mr. Speaker, I observe you have permitted a proposal that a certain Clause should be omitted from the Bill. That is the proposal that I wished to make, and I want to know why it is right in one case and not in another.
The whole matter was a consequential one. The matter was put down as an Amendment, not on the Question "That the Clause stand part of the Bill." I do not understand the hon. Member's objection.
A proposal was accepted for the rejection of a Clause.
Because there was an Amendment on the Order Paper. If it had not been on the Order Paper, I would riot have accepted it and certainly would not have put the Question to the House.
Amendment agreed to.
