Mr George Isaacs: The hon Member for Grimsby (Mr. Womersley) has several times repeated the statement that this Motion asks the House to give power to the Minister to spend money.

Mr George Isaacs: I beg to second the Motion. Like the hon. Member who has just spoken, I am exercising the privilege of addressing the House for the first time, and I am glad to do so in the calm of to-day following the storm of yesterday.
