HC Deb 27 May 1970 vol 801 c2017

Lords Amendment: No. 3, in page 13. line 42, column 1, leave out " Part I ".

Mrs. Shirley Williams

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

Mr. Speaker

I suggest that it will be convenient to discuss Lords Amendments Nos. 3, 4 and 5 together.

Mrs. Williams

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments agreed to.
