§ 3.2 p.m.
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR (LORD HAILSHAM OF SAINT MARYLEBONE)
My Lords, I rise to move that this Bill be now read a second time. It is a pure Consolidation Bill. It consolidates the Television and Sound Broadcasting Acts 971 1964 and 1972 and certain other enactments relating to commercial television and local sound broadcasting services. It will, of course, be referred to the Joint Committee in the usual way. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 2ª.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Bill read 2ª, and referred to the Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills.
