HL Deb 26 February 1970 vol 308 cc172-3

3.34 p.m.


My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time. I need not make a speech on Third Reading because the Bill has been through all its stages in this House and we have had a good deal of discussion on it. Before I sit down, however, I should like to thank those noble Lords who have taken part, because they have helped to a great extent in the creation of the Bill as it is now amended. Particularly should I like to thank the noble Lord, Lord Beswick, for the kind way in which he has treated me during the passage of the Bill, and also for the very co-operative attitude of the Home Office. I wish to express that appreciation.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a. —(Viscount Massereene and Ferrard.)


My Lords, may I say what a pleasure it was to me to treat the noble Viscount kindlily. If, as I expect, the Bill will now go from this House, I wish it well in the other place.

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