It is these ancillary trades which it is expected will be impeded, will not have the right of consultation, and will be disposed of without due regard to their usefulness. I appreciate, Sir, that I must direct my remarks to that aspect of the Amendment.

To what extent do hon. Members opposite wish to impede the authority in the incipient and later stages? Many of their fears, although they may be genuine, are largely unfounded. I believe that this development must be given a reasonable opportunity in both the incipient and the later stages. Hon. Members and those in the industry will then realise that this was the only course that the Government could legitimately and justifiably take.
