§ 3.47 p.m.
§ LORD WILBERFORCE
My Lords, my noble and learned friend Lord Dip-lock is unfortunately detained elsewhere on judicial business and he has asked me to move on his behalf. I understand that no Amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript Amendment or speak in Committee. Therefore, unless, any noble Lord objects, on behalf of my noble friend, I beg to move, pursuant to Standing Order No. 43(2), That the Order of Commitment be discharged.
§ Moved, That the Order of Commitment be discharged.—(Lord Wilberforce.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ Then, Standing Order No. 42 having been suspended (pursuant to the Resolution of March 30) Bill read 3a, and passed.
