HL Deb 26 July 1971 vol 323 c8

2.49 p.m.


My Lords, On moving the Third Reading of this Bill, I should like to point out to the House that, although I do not ordinarily put down more than two Private Bills for Third Reading at the beginning of the list, there are four on the Order Paper this afternoon, and three for to-morrow. The reason for this is that these Bills should, if possible, receive the Royal Assent by the Recess. I did not think it would be for the convenience of the House to take them at the end of the late Sittings we are expecting to-day and to-morrow. My Lords, I beg to move that the Bill be read a third time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.—(The Earl of Listowel.)

On Question, Bill read 3a, with the Amendments, and passed, and returned to the Commons.
