Perhaps I may make this preliminary observation. I shall be happy to give any member of the Committee such explanation—short, medium or long—as he may wish on any of the amendments. But I shall wait to be asked. For the present, I content myself by saying that these two amendments correct a wrong date.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 2, in page 32, line 16, leave out '1st January 1957' and insert '16th July 1956'.—[Mr. Brooke.]
