3.32 p.m.

On a point of Order. May I ask you, Mr. Speaker, whether, in the event of the Report stage of the Bill being concluded before ten o'clock, you propose to call a Motion on the Order Paper in my name and the names of my right hon. and hon. Friends on this side to recommit the Bill in respect of certain Amendments to Clause 15, dealing with compensation?

So far as the Government are concerned, and subject to your seeing no objection, Mr. Speaker, we see no objection to the method proposed by the right hon. Gentleman.

Of course, if a complete recommittal were proposed, I think it would be out of Order under the Guillotine procedure. As it is a recommittal in respect of certain Amendments to a Clause, it is in Order, and the only qualification I have to make is that I shall call it if there is time.
