Financial Resolutions, 1982. - Motion for Late Sitting.

I move:

That the House sit later than 9 p.m. tonight but not later than midnight.

The purpose of this late sitting is to enable the Financial Resolutions to be debated. By agreement Financial Resolutions Nos. 1 to 16 will be completed tonight.

In order to facilitate the Government to deal with the business before the House as expeditiously as possible we do not mind sitting late to do that. I suggest that we might consider adjourning for a brief 20 minutes or half an hour to let us have a look at the very complicated Financial Resolutions put forward.

I suggest until 6.30 p.m.

Question put and agreed to.
Sitting suspended at 6 p.m. and resumed at 6.30 p.m.
