HL Deb 26 April 1972 vol 330 c460

My Lords, in rising to move the Adjournment of the House perhaps I might say a word about these debates. This is the first time we have had a mini-debate which has continued for its full time, and in this debate two noble Lords were unable to speak at all and many of the later speakers were deprived of the time which they obviously should have had. There are lessons to be learned, and I am glad that we have had this opportunity to see what happens when we are in danger of running over time. These lessons we must consider when this experiment comes to an end. I beg to move that the House do now adjourn.

Moved, That the House do now adjourn.—(Earl St. Aldwyn.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned at seven minutes before seven o'clock.
