As the Leader of the House announced early this afternoon, it was hoped that we should be able to get the first four Bills on the Paper, but I agree with the right hon. Member for Peebles (Sir D. Maclean) that it would lead to considerable divergence of opinion if we were to take the Allotments (Scotland) Bill at this hour of the evening. Therefore, I would suggest, if it meet with the wishes of the House, that we should get the Second Beading of the Bill at present under discussion, and take the next three Orders on the Paper—Air Ministry (Kenley Common Acquisition) Bill, Isle of Man (Customs) Bill, and Universities (Scotland) Bill—which are really non-controversial, and then take the Second Reading of the Allotments (Scotland) Bill as second Order on Friday, and I trust it would not take very long before we should obtain that Second Beading.
