This Amendment and Amendment No. 22 go with Amendment No. 19. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 21 and 22.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(Lord Drumalbyn.)


My Lords, I do not wish to disagree with the two Amendments. I wish only to comment that it is extraordinary how many defects the Government have found in this legal Bill when it was considered in another place, in contrast to the Government view of the Common Market Bill which is regarded as being completely infallible and incapable of improvement by your Lordships' House.


My Lords, it may be that one Bill was more widely considered before it was introduced than was another.


I would remind the noble Lord that this Bill was not subject to the guillotine procedure in this place.

On Question, Amendments agreed to.
