Mr. Waterson: On a point of order, Mr. Beard. It will not have escaped your attention that due the guillotine, to which we are all subject, a tranche of clauses and schedules has been denied any debate. The Committee did not discuss part 9 at all. Some time could have been saved and used on those provisions if the Government had given us some inkling earlier in the debate of their proposed changes to the Competition Service.

The Chairman: That is not a point of order, but I am sure that the Under-Secretary has heard those points.

Column Number: 535

Mr. Pearson: On a point of order, Mr. Beard. We have considered the Bill at great length. If the Opposition had not spent nearly five hours discussing clause 20, we could have reached the information provisions in enough time to scrutinise them in detail.

Column Number: 536

Further consideration adjourned.—[Mr. Pearson.]

        Adjourned accordingly at five minutes past Seven o'clock till Thursday 9 May at half-past Nine o'clock.
