I think that it will be for the convenience of the Committee to know how the timetable will operate today, in view of the extension of time from 3.30 p.m. onwards.

It is now 3.52 p.m. and the result is that the proceedings on Clauses 7 and 8 will be guillotined at 6.22 p.m., the proceedings on Clauses 9 to 12 will be brought to an end at 8.52 p.m. and the remaining proceedings will be brought to an end at 11.52 p.m.

May I also say that since the provisional selections were posted, as a result of representations that I have received I have given some further thought to the matter and I think that it will be for the consideration of the Committee if, on calling the first Amendment, No. 349, there are discussed with it the following Amendments: Nos. 144, 350, 90, 145, 142, 143, 95 and 172.

The result of that change will be that Amendment No. 142, in Clause 7, page 8, line 40, leave out from beginning to "subsection" and insert: within 14 days after demand in accordance with", will not be called separately, but Amendment 93 will be called and there can be discussed with it the Amendments provisionally selected to go with it other than those previously taken, and it will be open for a Division on Amendment 94 as well as 93 if so desired.
