HL Deb 14 May 1941 vol 119 cc192-3

Order of the Day for the Third Reading read.


My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.—(The Lord Chancellor.)


My Lords, I would draw attention to the fact that owing to the noise which was going on at the other end of the Chamber I was unable to hear what the noble and learned Viscount who sits on the Woolsack said in moving the Third Reading. But I should like to say that everyone in this House is grateful to the noble and learned Viscount for the unfailing courtesy with which he has conducted the business connected with this and other Bills. I have already spoken on this Bill and have expressed my view that it is a very necessary measure.


My Lords, I beg to associate myself with what has been said by the noble Lord who has just spoken.

On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed, and sent to the Commons.
