HL Deb 05 December 1972 vol 337 c240

7.57 p.m.


My Lords, I have already explained the purpose of this Bill, and put it in the context of our overall policies. If any noble Lords wish to make further observations at this stage I shall certainly be happy to deal with them in reply. Meanwhile, I think it would be for the convenience of the House if I moved formally. I beg to move that this Bill be read a second time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(Lord Windlesham.)

On Question, Bill read 2a, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House.
