HL Deb 09 April 1970 vol 309 cc238-9

3.13 p.m.


My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time. In moving this Motion I should like to thank the noble Lord, Lord Drumalbyn, for his courtesy and co-operation at the earlier stages of the Bill, which I believe now is generally acceptable.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a. —(Lord Bowles.)


My Lords, may I thank the noble Lord for his kindly reference to myself? I would also thank the Government for the co-operation they have shown; and, what is more important, coupled with my gratitude is the gratitude of the friendly societies and their members for what has been done.

On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed, and sent to the Commons.
