HL Deb 21 March 1951 vol 170 cc1246-7

2.53 p.m.


My Lords, in rising to move the Motion standing on the Order Paper in the name of my noble friend the Leader of the House, may I say that I move it in an amended form? The noble Lord, Lord Teviot, does not propose at present to go forward with the Motion standing in his name. Therefore, the only Motion to be dealt with under the Order of Business on that day is the Motion standing in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu. Perhaps I ought to add that this has been caused by the need for reaching accommodation for the continuation of the Committee stage of the Forestry Bill. It has been found more convenient for noble Lords interested in the Bill that that should be taken on April 4, rather than on April 3. I beg to move.

Moved, That leave be given for the Motion of the Lord Montagu of Beaulieu (now standing for Wednesday, April 4 next) to be advanced to Tuesday, April 3 next.—(Lord Shepherd.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, and ordered accordingly.
