§ VISCOUNT ALEXANDER OF HILLSBOROUGH
My Lords, I cannot let go by the occasion of the Third Readings of these three Scottish Confirmation measures, moved by the noble Earl on behalf of his colleague the Minister of State for Scotland, without saying that we hear with great regret the reason which prevents the noble Lord, Lord Craigton. from being here. We know he has been ill as a consequence of his experience, and we hope very much that he is making progress and will soon be with us again.
§ On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed.
