HL Deb 24 April 1989 vol 506 cc1106-7
The Earl of Arran

My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be read a third time.

As I said on Second Reading, this is a small Bill and a non-conroversial one. Although small, nevertheless it affects some 600 police officers who are seconded to central services in England, Wales and Scotland. Its sole purpose is to overcome certain difficulties which have arisen over the status of those officers. I commend the Bill to your Lordships.

Moved, That the Bill be now read a third time—(The Earl of Arran.)

Lord Mishcon

My Lords, the House will be grateful for that short, concise and courteous description of this Bill. We have no observation to make except to thank the noble Earl for the way in which he has presented it.

On Question, Bill read a third time.

The Earl of Arran

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

Moved, That the Bill do now pass—(The Earl of Arran.)

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