Order for consideration, as amended, read.

I beg to move,

That the Bill be recommitted to a Committee of the whole House in respect of the Amendments to Schedule 2, page 43, lines 7, 30 and 36, and page 44, line 39, standing on the Notice Paper in the name of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
I move this Motion formally in order to enable us to fulfil, not exactly undertakings, but what we said in Committee, with a view to making certain Amendments to the Second Schedule. Hon. Members will remember that certain points were put to us with a view to making the Second Schedule a little clearer and perhaps a little tighter. The Second Schedule refers to the withholding and withdrawal of investment allowances. It is to enable us to discuss the Government's proposals and to meet the points put forward that I move this Motion.

I do not propose to select the two Amendments to the Motion since these matters have recently been discussed in Committee of the whole House and decided on Divisions.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill immediately considered in Committee.

[Sir CHARLES MACANDREW in the Chair]
