§ LORD BESWICK
My Lords, with permission I should like to make a short business Statement. It is intended—or perhaps I should say it was intended—to take all the business standing on the Order Paper, up to and including the Road Traffic Regulation Bill, before lunch, together with the consideration of the Commons Message on the Criminal Justice Bill, which will be taken immediately after the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) No. 2 Bill. It is hoped that the House will adjourn at approximately 1 p.m. and will meet again at 2 p.m. for the consideration of the Commons Amendments to the Companies Bill.
