The hon. and learned Gentleman should have thought of that before. It seems to me that the Amendment which I have called him to move, which is introductory to the two following Amendments, raises a point which is really independent of this discussion on the Schedule. It does modify the burden of proof in a way different from that contained in the Bill. I hope that the hon. and learned Member will proceed with that point; it is quite a substantial point.
