§ Read a third time.
§ Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Lord Blake.)
§ Lord Tordoff
My Lords, may I intervene briefly? We from these Benches have taken very little part in this Bill, but I know that the noble Lord, Lord Blake, understands that he has every support from this area on an important Bill. I merely want to go on the record as saying that. It is an important day for this House to have passed a Bill on proportional representation in local government.
§ On Question, Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.
