I understand that you will deal with any applications when they are made, Mr. Speaker, but may I point out to you at this stage that I am against new Clause 1, entitled "Local authority option", and in favour of new Clause 2, entitled "Certificates for land used for staging spectacles on Sundays". If there is one Division on the whole lot, I shall find myself in some difficulty. The reasons for that I shall explain if I catch your eye, Mr. Speaker. I am against local authority option and in favour of the restrictions set out in new Clause 2. One Division would place me in a position of some embarrassment.
