My hon. Friend with great impartiality has put his name to both Amendments. My criticism of the second Amendment is that he will have to get this Convention establishing uniformity, whatever that may mean, before this Statute of Westminster comes into operation. It is exactly the calling of a conference which is to carry out that rather difficult and, I think, impossible task which I should view with some apprehension. For those reasons, I hope the Committee will not accept the Amendment.
