I again welcome the statement of the Leader of the House. It is no secret that Labour Members, and indeed many others, felt that it would have been advisable to implement the Plowden committee's report. The House made its will known last week, and I commend the Leader of the House for enshrining that will entirely within that resolution and thank him for it.
