Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Dr. King. Am I permitted to move that the Chairman do report Progress and ask leave to sit again?

Sir Rolf Williams: I want to take up the remarks made by the hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes). We are always getting arguments about remuneration of hon.

Friend the Member for Barnet (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (21 Dec 1964)

Business of the House (17 Dec 1964)

Regional Economic Planning (10 Dec 1964)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. As I understand, the right hon. Gentleman the First Secretary of State has made a statement which will result in considerable changes in the way we conduct our affairs.

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Administrative Provisions Relating to New Ministries.) (9 Dec 1964)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Dr. King. We are, as I understand, considering the first Amendment, which refers to the Minister of Land and Natural Resources. The right hon. Gentleman's reply on behalf of the Government is referring also to Amendments Nos. 2 and 3. While I support Amendment No. 1, I do not think that I support Amendment No. 3, and, as we have not agreed to take all these Amendments...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Administrative Provisions Relating to New Ministries.) (9 Dec 1964)
