HL Deb 09 August 1966 vol 276 cc1749-50

6.38 p.m.


had given Notice of a Motion to call attention to the extension of the experimental period for the 70 m.p.h. speed limit; and to move for Papers. The noble Lord said: My Lords, before the noble Lord, Lord Auckland, rises on the next Business, it may be for the convenience of the House if I say that I do not propose to move this evening the Motion which is on the Order Paper in my name. I think it might be for the convenience of the House if, instead of bringing this matter on at a rather late hour, I were to postpone it to some future occasion.


My Lords, I am delighted to learn that the noble Lord is not to move his Motion this evening. I have had a tiring time lately, and I am most happy to be relieved of the task of replying to-night. I am most grateful.
