Capital Allowances Bill — 13 Feb 2001
Order for Third Reading read.
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.
Mr. Douglas Hogg (Sleaford and North Hykeham):
On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Before we proceed to consideration of the Bill on Third Reading, will you advise the House whether it is possible to determine how long the Committee sat? I have the report and I cannot identify for how many hours the Committee considered a Bill of many hundreds of clauses.
I hope that hon. Members who are called to speak will bear that limited purpose in mind, and will not seek to broaden the debate to cover general issues of taxation or budgetary policy.
It being Ten o'clock, the debate stood adjourned.
Motion made, and question proposed, pursuant to Standing Order No. 15 (Exempted business),
That, at this day's sitting, the Capital Allowances Bill may be proceeded with, though opposed, until any hour.-- [Mr. Pearson.]
