HL Deb 12 December 1991 vol 533 c874

3.30 p.m.

Lord Hesketh

My Lords, it may be for the convenience of the House to know that the Committee stage of the Further and Higher Education Bill will be adjourned at about 7 p.m. for about one hour and that during this adjournment the Report and Third Reading of the Offshore Safety Bill will be taken. It is a matter of regret that today, again, the digital clocks are not working, but I can assure your Lordships that as I speak heroic efforts are taking place to attempt to get them operational as soon as possible.
