The Prime Minister will immediately see the position we are in. Supposing we carry this on division, we are opposing a thing we might be absolutely in accord with in principle if we had [DOT] time to read it. Supposing we agree to it, we might be agreeing to a thing that we may be opposed to in principle after we had time to read it. I cannot see that such a course will advance the business ' of the House, because when we come to the second reading we immediately go into committee, when we shall make any objections we have in regard to the two Bills.
I know my right hon. friend does not want us to believe that the resistance of his heart would be that of a heart of stone, because he is known for his great heart, and he is going to grant my request.
