§ 3.5 p.m.
§ Lord Hesketh
My Lords, perhaps I may apologise for the slightly extended nature of today's business statement. At a convenient moment after 3.30 p.m. my noble friend the Leader of the House will, with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement that is to be made in another place on the Brixton prison escape. That will be followed by my noble friend Lord Brabazon of Tara who will, again with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement on the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.
It may be for the convenience of the House if I announce that the Committee stage of the Local Government Finance and Valuation Bill will be adjourned at about 7 p.m. for about one hour and that during this adjournment the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Special Exemptions) Regulations 1991, the Access to Personal Files (Social Services) (Amendment) Regulations 1991 and the Motor Vehicles (International Circulation) (Amendment) Order 1991 will be taken.
