§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR (LORD HAILSHAM OF ST. MARYLEBONE)
My Lords, I beg to move that the Commons Amendments be now considered. May I, in three sentences, say all that I have to say about this matter. The Bill was moved to this place on the Order Paper because it was thought that we might get 857 by without a debate, and this is probably right. It is, as your Lordships will remember, a Consolidation Bill, and both the Amendments that I shall be moving, if this Motion is carried, are so technical and so obviously right that I do not think they require very much discussion. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That the Commons Amendments be now considered.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
