§ Viscount Whitelaw
My Lords, unfortunately there is an error in the terms of the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper. It provides for Standing Order 44 be dispensed with today for the purposes of taking the Consolidated Fund Bill through all its stages, when in fact it is proposed that the Bill should be taken through all its stages tomorrow. With the leave of the House, I beg to move the Motion with the substitution of "tomorrow" for "this day".
§ Moved, That, if the Consolidated Fund Bill is brought from the Commons, Standing Order 44 (No two stages of a bill to he taken on one day) be dispensed with to enable the Bill to be taken through all its stages tomorrow.—(Viscount Whitelaw.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
