Question accordingly agreed to.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendments.-- [The Chairman of Ways and Means.]

Mr. Andrew F. Bennett : On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Could you tell us how you intend to deal with this? Is there to be a debate on the first amendment, followed by our proceeding to a vote if we wish ; or do you intend us to debate several amendments together, followed by votes on each?

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Paul Dean) : It would be more convenient for the House and in accordance with our normal custom if we had a general debate on all the Lords amendments. We could consider later how to reach a decision on the amendments.

Mr. Bennett : Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. When I look at the amendments I have difficulty understanding whether all the amendments hang together and deal with one issue or whether they cover a wide range of issues. Can you give guidance on whether they all hang together? Unfortunately, I could not find a selection list in the Noes Lobby.

Column 1280

Mr. Deputy Speaker I think that it would be for the convenience of the House if we proceeded in the way that I have suggested rather than tried to split them up artificially.
