§ The LORD CHANCELLOR (Lord Elwyn-Jones)
My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name. It is an Amendment providing that the time limits for taking various steps in prosecuting an appeal to the House of Lords shall not be affected by an emergency recall should such recall take place. This Amendment is similar to an amendment of Private Bill Standing Orders to which the House recently agreed and where similar considerations apply.
Moved, in Standing Order IX, at end to insert:
("Provided that if the House is recalled in pursuance of Public Business Standing Order No. 16 or Proclamation, any day on which the House sits pursuant to such recall is not a sitting day for the purposes of this Standing Order."—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
