My Amendment is an important one, because, while not doing away absolutely with the Excess Profits Duty, it does do away with the proposed increase. If it should happen that the House should prefer going on, at any rate for a year, with the duty as it was, and if the Amendment of the hon. Gentleman opposite were put " that Paragraphs (a) and (b) stand part of the Resolution," it would make it impossible to raise the question whether the increase should be payable or not.
