§ 1.3 p.m.
§ LORD AMULREE had given notice of his intention to draw the attention of Her Majesty's Government to defects in the care and after-care service for the sick, especially the elderly sick, in the London area; and to move for Papers. The noble Lord said: My Lords, in view of the time, and after consultation with Her Majesty's Government, I do not propose now to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper.
THE EARL OF ONSLOW
My Lords, before we adjourn, I should like to thank the noble Lord, Lord Amulree, for adjourning this debate. I am sorry that we did not have the time. The noble Lord has been courteous enough to send me a letter setting out fully the matters he had intended to raise, and I assure 661 him that I will write to him in reply to his letter, doing my best to answer him in writing what I would have answered from this Box. If the noble Lord wishes to raise the matter again when we come back after the Recess, I shall be pleased.
EARL ST. ALDWYN
My Lords, I beg to move chat the House do now adjourn during pleasure until the hour of two-thirty this afternoon.
§ Moved, That the House do now adjourn during pleasure until the hour of two-thirty this afternoon.—(Earl St. Aldwyn.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and House adjourned during pleasure accordingly until two-thirty o'clock.
