I beg to move, in page 20, line 40, to leave out "a copy" and to insert "three copies". There is a further manuscript Amendment, in line 41, after the word "year" to insert: and the Minister shall cause one of those copies to be laid before each House of Parliament. The object of this Amendment is to clear up a point which was made at a previous stage in these proceedings on an Amendment moved by the right hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Ness Edwards) with regard to the laying of the accounts before Parliament. The additional words are proposed so that the Minister may cause a copy to be laid before each House of Parliament and keep one copy for himself.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 20, line 41, after the word "year" insert: and the Minister shall cause one of those copies to be laid before each House of Parliament."—[Mr. Neave.]

Bill read the Third time and passed.
