683 STANDING COMMITTEE B Tuesday, 20th February, 1951

[Mr. T. J. BROOKS in the Chair]

NEW STREETS BILL
OFFICIAL REPORT

10.32 a.m.

Mr. Mitchison: I beg to move, "That the Committee do now adjourn." My reason for doing so is that there have been discussions between the persons interested, and we are hopeful that, given a little longer time, those discussions may result in a considerable saving of time in our further consideration of the Bill.

684

Mr. Geoffrey Hutchinson: I wish to support the Motion. The hon. and learned Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) and I have been having discussions about this Bill, and I hope, as he says, that if a little more time is allowed those discussions may prove fruitful in the sense that they will lighten the labours of this Committee. I hope that in those circumstances, the Committee will agree to adopt the course which the hon. and learned Member has proposed.

Question put, and agreed to.

Committee adjourned accordingly at Twenty-six Minutes to Eleven o'Clock until Thursday, 22nd February, at Half-past Ten o'Clock.
