§ 5.32 p.m.
§ Order of the Day for the Third Reading read.
§ LORD HASTINGS
My Lords, in moving that this Bill be read a third time, I want only to make very brief reference to the question of Stevenage and to draw the attention of those noble Lords who are interested to the Answer my right honourable friend gave in reply to a Question in another place two days ago, in which he said that if he were to propose any expan 1024 sion of the designated area of Stevenage—on which he has not yet decided—it was most improbable that he would propose taking the extension westwards of the A.600. I mention that because a great deal of our discussion last week was on that point. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.—(Lord Hastings.)
§ On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed.
