The hon. Member for Eastbourne (Mr. Marjoribanks) in his concluding observations, has suggested that the House of Commons is not fit to discuss this important Statute and that it had better be sent to another place where there are more eminent persons who are better fitted to take part in such a discussion. May I beg his assistance in sending this Bill to that place where he says it will he discussed to better advantage than it can be discussed here? The hon. Member invited us, I am sure sincerely, to treat the Amendments on the Paper seriously. I think it is a little hard to suggest that they are not receiving serious consideration. At any rate, we should not be reproached with failing to give them serious consideration.
