I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

As the House knows, the two purposes of the Bill are to raise the limit for advances for the new town development corporations and to remove a duplication in the presentation of accounts. These two purposes are simple and, in themselves, I think, quite acceptable in all parts of the House. It is true that there are one or two related matters which do not produce quite the same unanimity, but I hope that the hon. and learned Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) will think that it would not be appropriate on Third Reading to pursue these particular questions.
