As I originally put down my name in opposition to this Bill, I wish to say that, after a conference with those who promoted the Bill, the chairman and his colleagues of the Clyde Trust, an arrangement has been reached by which they have agreed to withdraw certain conditions which would have affected the question of stevedoring on the Clyde, and we have, therefore—I and those who have supported me in opposition—accepted the arrangement and withdrawn our opposition to the Bill.
