I have posted up, as is my wont, my selection of Amendments. I suggest to the House that we take with new Clause 1 the promoter's own Amendment No. 1, in page 1, line 12, Clause 1, leave out from beginning to end of line 15 and insert: 'the injury shall be deemed to be also attributable to negligence on the part of the employer (whether or not he is liable in respect of the injury apart from this subsection),'. If necessary, I shall put each of these separately at the end of the debate.
