HL Deb 27 September 1976 vol 374 cc161-2

Commons Amendments considered and agreed to.

in the Amendment by recasting the paragraph altogether, but if any other noble Lord has any suggestions then, as I said earlier, we shall be very pleased to consider them.


I do not quite know what to do. Perhaps I should offer the noble Lord a takeaway Chinese meal for a discussion on this important matter, but, because it is half-past ten, I think it is time to have an immediate decision. I press the Amendment.
