Mr Thomas Steele: The question of what is in order is a matter for the Chair.
Mr Thomas Steele: Order. I hope that the hon. Member will relate his remarks to the Amendment.
Mr Thomas Steele: Yes, but I thought that the hon. Member was about to rise to the bait offered him by the hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Geoffrey Wilson).
Mr Thomas Steele: I think that we would be better to leave the issue until we get to it. Mr. Heath.
Mr Thomas Steele: Order. I thought that the right hon. Gentleman was rising to a point of order. I called the right hon. Member for Bexley (Mr. Heath).
Mr Thomas Steele: Order. Hon. Members would be well advised to keep to the Amendment under discussion.
Mr Thomas Steele: I suggest that it would be convenient for the Committee to discuss, at the same time, Amendment No. 307, in page 43, leave out lines 23 to 27 and insert: in the capital of the settled property; provided that except where a person has the immediate right to call on the trustees of the settlement for the transfer of the chargeable gain which has accrued the payment of the tax assessed under...
Mr Thomas Steele: Does the hon. Gentleman's definition include a girl on roller skates?
Mr Thomas Steele: As this was a question that I had intended to put, may I, from this side of the House, say that the House itself was anxious that the Select Committee should report quickly upon the matter of Questions. We are anxious to have some remedy. Surely my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House should give the House either an opportunity to debate the matter quickly, or bring forward proposals himself.
Mr Thomas Steele: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has for increasing the progress of the road building programme.
Mr Thomas Steele: Is my hon. Friend aware that only seven or eight of the 15 miles of motorway on the A.74 are under construction? Will he ensure that construction of the other seven miles, which would complete this part of the motorway, is authorised fairly quickly so that the whole job can be finished before 1968?
Mr Thomas Steele: Would my hon. Friend, when discussing distilling generally, convey the kind regards of hon. Members on this side of the House to his right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs for reducing the cost of living by 7s. per bottle?
Mr Thomas Steele: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Can you inform me whether, and when, we are to start the Orders of the Day?
Mr Thomas Steele: Is my right hon. Friend aware that I received a letter from one of his predecessors in 1955 indicating that this double carriageway road from Carlisle to Uddingston would be completed by 1965? How far are we from that promise?
Mr Thomas Steele: On a point of order, Dr. King. Is it in order for the hon. Member to read his speech?
Mr Thomas Steele: No, it is not in order.
Mr Thomas Steele: Order. If the hon. Gentleman does not give way, the right hon. Gentleman must resume his seat.
Mr Thomas Steele: I am sorry, but I did not clearly hear what the hon. Member said.
Mr Thomas Steele: Order. We are discussing another kind of night.
Mr Thomas Steele: The question whether this is out of order or not is a matter for the Chair.
