I can certainly give the assurance that if the Amendment were withdrawn and the Bill proceeded with with despatch, I would certainly consider the Amendment and the arguments advanced on both sides of the House in connection with it with the greatest possible care, and would be most willing to discuss the matter privately afterwards. But that can only be contingent upon the later stages of the Bill proceeding with despatch. We should have to get the Bill today.
