§ LORD HASTINGS
My Lords, I think this is a trick question which my noble friend has put to me. Part IV is merely saying when Parts I, II, and III come into effect.
VISCOUNT COLVILLE OF CULROSS
My Lords, it is not a trick question, with respect, because it is a substantive Amendment.
§ On Question, Amendment agreed to.
§ Schedule 11 [Enactments repealed]:
§ 7.10 p.m.
My Lords, this is the first of a series, of Government Amendments listing further enactments repealed by Clause 118 (2). For the convenience of the House, I would like to suggest your Lordships might consider Amendments 144 to 154 together, because all the enactments listed in the Schedule are either superseded by provisions of the Bill or are incompatible with the 1530 Bill. In other words, their repeal will be consequential upon the passing of the Bill, although the repeals themselves will not be effective until either the second appointed day (those are the repeals covered by Part I of the Schedule) or the end of the initial period (those in Part II). I beg to move.

In moving it, I should like to thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this stage of this not unimportant Bill, not only for the substance of their contributions but also for the spirit in which those contributions have been made. My noble friends Lord Hastings and Lord St. Oswald and I very much appreciate it. I beg to move.

§ LORD CROOK
My Lords, I should not have risen at this late hour, but for the words which have fallen from the noble Earl. I wish to say how much those of us who have done the work on this side of the House appreciate the work that has been done on the other side. I can say this with great ease to both sides, because I have done none of it. I have merely been sitting here watching the proceedings.
§ On Question, Amendment agreed to.
§ House adjourned at thirteen minutes past seven o'clock.
