HL Deb 24 February 1972 vol 328 c755

7.29 p.m.


My Lords, I understand that no Amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript Amendment or to speak in Committee.

At this point I must inform your Lordships that this is a Bill to consolidate the law with amendments recommended by the Law Commissioners. The Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills were of the opinion that the recommendations of the Law Commissioners were for the purpose of producing a satisfactory consolidation of the law and they approved the recommendations without amendment. They made 50 other Amendments to the Bill to improve its form and to bring it into conformity with the existing law. The Committee state in their Report that in their opinion there is no further point to which the attention of Parliament should be drawn. Therefore, unless any noble Lord Objects, I beg to move that the Order of Re-commitment be discharged.

Moved, That the Order of Re-Commitment be discharged.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
