In view of the announcement yesterday on the subject of Teachers' Superannuation, that a Committee is to inquire into the conditions of such superannuation, is it now advisable that the time of the House should be taken up with the Bill which the right hon. Gentleman has named?

I am afraid that I do not know the details to which my right hon. Friend refers, but it is the Second Reading of the Bill, and no doubt the Committee will still be able to proceed with its inquiry.
