The time available is insufficient to produce an over-printed Order Paper listing Amendments provisionally selected by the Chair but consideration is being given to placing an extra 50 copies of the list of selected Amendments on the shelf in the No Lobby. Even if extra copies can be provided in this way, however,Mr.Speaker or the Chairman must, of course, retain their right to alter the provisional selection, which is sometimes done after representations have been received.
