I rise only to make an appeal to hon. Members. The Amendment is an Amendment for the total repeal of the Excess Profits Duty. My hon. Friend, the Member for the City of London, has a further Amendment proposing to continue the duty at 40 per cent. instead of raising it to 60 per cent. May I beg the House to take the decision now on the question of the total repeal of the duty, so that we may have a little time before 8.15 to deal with the further Amendment and dispose of any other questions?
