It is proposed to take Nos. 1, 8, 9 (resumed), 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 7, 5 and 6. Item No. 7 will be taken with Vote 47 and Items 5 and 6 will be taken with Votes 48 and 49.

As there is agreement to deal with the Estimates in this generally unsatisfactory manner it is of course on the customary basis that a number of these Estimates may be debated in Government time in the autumn and that it has been agreed that such time will be provided for a number of such debates and Estimates to be selected by the Opposition.
