As amended ( in the Standing Committee), considered.

4.15 p.m.

The new Clause standing in the name of the hon. Member for Eton and Slough (Mr. Brockway) and other right hon. and hon. Members—"Defence agreements between the United Kingdom and South Africa"—is out of order.

On a point of order. I accept your direction, Mr. Speaker, but may I seek your guidance on one point? In view of the very serious situation, because of rearmament in South Africa, assisted by this country, will there be an opportunity during the consideration of the Bill to raise this matter?

No. On Third Reading the House can discuss only the contents of the Bill as they will be, because the new Clause is out of order.
