§ 3.20 p.m.
§ Lord Hesketh
My Lords, it may be for the convenience of the House if I were again briefly to remind your Lordships of the procedure on Third Reading.
Your Lordships will have seen that a number of amendments have been tabled for Third Reading. In discussing these amendments, the same procedure should be followed as on Report. That is that no noble Lord should speak twice, except the mover of the amendment in reply, or, with the leave of the House, the Minister or a noble Lord seeking to explain a part of his speech. Save for brief questions to the Minister, no noble Lord except the mover of the amendment should speak after the Minister has sat down.
Debate is also possible on the Motion that the Bill do now pass, but such debate should be relevant to the Bill in the form in which it has emerged.
