[FIFTH DAY]

Order read for resuming adjourned debate on Question [9th November]:

That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows:
Most Gracious Sovereign,
We. Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.

Before I propose the Question again for the debate on the Loyal Address, I wish to announce to the House that I have selected for discussion the two Amendments standing in the name of the Official Opposition. I have selected for debate today the Amendment which seeks to add,

"But humbly regret that the Gracious Speech contains little promise of progress in the modernisation of industry, notably in the fields of transport and technology."
For tomorrow I have selected the Amendment which seeks to add,
" But humbly regret that the Gracious Speech contains no measures likely to redeem the failure of Your Majesty's Government's economic policy and, in particular, of the policy on Productivity, Prices and Incomes, which imperils the standard of living and savings of Your people."

Question again proposed.
