HC Deb 13 April 1981 vol 3 c123

Order for Second Reading read.

11.5 pm

The Solicitor-General (Sir Ian Percival)

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

Life is full of surprises, and there may be some points of great importance arising on this Bill. I am sorry to see that the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) is leaving. This is a pure consolidation Bill and consolidates into one enactment the existing statutory provisions relating to passenger vehicles used for public transport services in England, Wales and Scotland. The joint consolidation Bills Committee was satisfied about the Bill, and so am I.

Question put and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read a Second time.

Bill committed to a Committee of the whole House.—[Mr. Berry.]

Bill immediately considered in Committee; reported, without amendment.

Motion made, and Question, That the Bill be now read the Third time, put forthwith pursuant to Standing Order No. 56 (Third Reading) and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read the Third time and passed, without amendment.
