§ Lord Hesketh
My Lords, it may be for the convenience of the House to know that, subject to the progress of business, the Report stage of the Housing and Urban Development Bill may be adjourned at about 7 p.m. for about one hour. In that event, the Second Reading of the Merchant Shipping (Registration etc.) Bill will be taken.
Perhaps I should inform the House that the Committee stage of the Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill will be postponed to a later date.
