My amendment was very much a probing one, and in a way I felt that it was slightly mean to table it in the light of the bigger picture that the Paymaster General outlined. None the less, it is important to have heard the Government's view on the subject. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
Schedule 12, as amended, agreed to.
Further consideration adjourned.—[Mr. Sutcliffe.]
Adjourned accordingly at three minutes to Seven o'clock till Thursday 23 May at half-past Nine o'clock.
