Read a third time.

Baroness Macleod of Borve

My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill do now pass.

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Baroness Macleod of Borve.)

Lord Mishcon

My Lords, I do not think that this moment ought to pass without the whole House paying its tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Macleod, for piloting a very useful Bill for the protection of youngsters in regard to the very dreadful and dangerous habit of glue sniffing and for seeing that those who intentionally make money out of this kind of thing suffer for it and come within the purview of our criminal law. The noble Baroness is to be congratulated.

Baroness Macleod of Borve

My Lords, perhaps I may be allowed to thank the noble Lord for his kind remarks.

Baroness Cox

My Lords, perhaps I may, very briefly, on behalf of the Government echo the words of appreciation spoken by the noble Lord, Lord Mishcon, and express our gratitude and appreciation to my noble friend for the excellent way in which she has piloted this most important Bill through your Lordships' House.

On Question, Bill passed.
