I beg to move, "That the Amendments to the Standing Orders relative to Private Business, as set out in the Schedule attached hereto, be made:

Schedule.

Standing Order 39,—page 116, line 6, after 'Ministry,' insert 'the Ministry of Civil Aviation.'

Standing Order 60,—page 133, line 19, after 'Ministry,' insert 'or the Ministry of Civil Aviation.'

Line 20, after 'Air,' add 'or the Minister of Civil Aviation, as the case may be.'

Standing Order 180,—page 198, line 9, after 'Ministry,' insert 'or the Ministry of Civil Aviation.'

Line 10, after 'Air,' add 'or the Minister of Civil Aviation, as the case may be.'

Appendix (C) (Table of Fees),—page 233, line 8, leave out '£1 2s.,' and insert '£3 3s.'

Line 10, leave out '9d.,' and insert '1s. 0d.'"

These Amendments relate to Standing Orders concerning Private Business. As the House is aware, copies of all Private Bills have to be furnished, under Standing Orders, to certain Government Departments. A new Ministry has now been created—the Ministry of Civil Aviation—and it is desired to add the name of that Ministry to the list of Ministries to whom Bills have to be supplied by the promoters. The first five Amendments, therefore, deal with that question, and bring in the Ministry of Civil Aviation. The last two Amendments relate to increases in the shorthand writers' rates, and these have been agreed by the Treasury, as a result of representations by the shorthand writers.

Question put, and agreed to.
