HC Deb 08 April 1957 vol 568 c910

Not amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

Order for Third Reading read.—[Queen's Consent, on behalf of the Crown, signified.]

8.24 p.m.

The Solicitor-General (Sir Harry Hylton-Foster)

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

I am grateful to hon. Members for the interest and careful scrutiny that they have given to the Bill. The worst possible reward for their kindness would be to inflict another speech on them, but I have to say this to the House.

The hon. and learned Member for Leicester, North-East (Sir L. Ungoed-Thomas) and the hon. Member for Edge Hill (Mr. A. J. Irvine) asked me to look again at an assurance which I gave them that the Bill dealt with all the categories of lawful visitors to premises other than the users of a public or private right of way. We have looked at that again with the greatest possible care, and I am glad to say that our assurance is, I am certain, well-founded.

Question put and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read the Third time and passed.
