§ Lord Denham
My Lords, in moving that the House do now adjourn, I should like to thank noble Lords for their patience in staying until this late hour, and not only your Lordships but everyone else in the House; the Clerks, the staff of the Refreshment Department, the writers of the Official Report, the Doorkeepers, the custodians, the policemen and everyone else. I am sure that those words of thanks will be echoed by your Lordships. I beg to move that the House do now adjourn.
§ Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede
My Lords, we echo very much and associate ourselves with all the words of the noble Lord the Government Chief Whip. I would simply add that when we come to the Bill which we have just read a first time I hope that we do not go through this again.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ House adjourned at thirteen minutes before nine o'clock.
