HL Deb 08 May 1984 vol 451 cc875-6

(formerly Straw and Stubble Burning Prohibition Bill [H.L.])

7.53 p.m.

Read a third time.

Lord Alport

My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill do now pass. In doing so, I am reminded that on Second Reading I said that I was sure that your Lordships would knock the Bill into shape. Your Lordships have knocked it into a rather different shape from the one in which it started. Although it is more limited, I think that it is a useful Bill and that it is right for it to go now to the other place and be submitted to the tender mercies there. I merely want to take the occasion of proposing that the Bill do now pass, to thank those of your Lordships who took part in the early stages of the Bill and who helped very much to improve it. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Lord Alport.)

On Question, Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.

Lord Denham

My Lords, I beg to move that the House do now adjourn during pleasure until 8.40 p.m.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

[The Sitting was suspended from 7.54 until 8.40 p.m.]
