§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Hailsham of Saint Marylebone)
My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read a third time.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Bill read a third time.
§ Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ Lord Elwyn-Jones
My Lords, will it not achieve a record—if, indeed, this Bill does now pass—that in the course of fewer than three minutes three Bills will have gone through their last stages?
§ The Lord Chancellor
My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord. It may be like the strawberry which I read about in this morning's press: it goes into the Guinness Book of Records.
§ On Question, Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.
