Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Bill be now read the Third time.— [Mr. Younger.]

1.58 am

The House will know that we are voting against the Third Reading because of our extreme opposition to clause 1. There are many useful things in the Bill. I thank my hon. Friends who handled the Bill in Committee for the Opposition, the other Opposition Members of the Committee and some Conservative Members, for making some improvements to the less contentious parts of the Bill. However, we thoroughly deplore clause 1 and we shall vote against the Third Reading.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:—

The House divided: Ayes 100, Noes 39.

Question accordingly agreed to.
