I beg to move, That this House takes note of Commission Document R/1362/75. I trust that I shall be able to move this motion to the satisfaction of my hon. Friends. I hope that they will find that they are able to take note of it and that they will find that they would not have wished to move their amendment.

I might add that my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury has just had cause to bifurcate upon inaccurate Press reports. I repeat to the House what I said earlier on the points of order—namely, that the Press report in yesterday's issue of The Times relating to the motion was not accurate. That being so, the motion and this debate are both necessary.
