HC Deb 02 July 1973 vol 859 c173

Consideration of a Lords amendment to a Commons amendment and Lords reason for disagreeing to certain Commons amendments.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. E. L. Mallalieu)

Before I call the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State for Social Services to move his first motion, I must call the attention of the House to the fact that privilege is involved both in the Lords amendment to the Commons amendment and in the Lords disagreement to the other two Commons amendments.

May I also suggest to the House that as all three of the right hon. Gentleman's motions are interconnected they should be debated together. The Question on each motion must, of course, be put separately, and that will be done at the end of the debate.

I now call the right hon. Gentleman to move his first motion.
