HL Deb 22 April 1971 vol 317 cc822-3

5.28 p.m.


My Lords, I beg to move that the Commons Amendments be now considered. I apologise for the rather formidable looking menu which is now before the House, but I look forward to being assisted a good deal by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Gardiner, in the grouping and handling of any points which need discussion. My own belief is that there is practically nothing which raises a question of principle, and if I may try to move along as quickly as possible with a mass of technical and misconsequential Amendments and to raise any new matter as I go along, I hope that we may dispose of this formidable series of Amendments fairly reasonably quickly.

Moved, That the Commons Amendments be now considered.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
