HL Deb 11 February 1952 vol 174 cc1085-6

My Lords I beg to move that a Message of Condolence be sent to Her Majesty Queen Mary.

Moved, That a Message of Condolence be conveyed to Her Majesty Queen Mary:

Assuring Her Majesty of the deep and loyal affection of this House; and

Expressing to Her Majesty the heartfelt sympathy of its members in the grievous loss which Her Majesty and the nation have suffered by the death of our late beloved King, Her Son.—(The Marquess of Salisbury.)

On Question, Motion agreed to, nemine dissentiente, and ordered accordingly: the said Message to be presented to Her Majesty by the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Chancellor, the Lord Privy Seal, the Earl Jowitt and the Viscount Samuel.


My Lords, I beg to move that this House do now adjourn during pleasure until 3.30 p.m. this afternoon. In doing so, I should say for the convenience of your Lordships that if there are any Peers who feel that they wish to put on overcoats for Westminster Hall, it will be perfectly proper for them to do so.

Moved accordingly and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned.

House resumed.
