Lord Boyd-Carpenter

My Lords, can my noble friend say what will be the total cost of this unhappy enterprise to the taxpayer?

Viscount Goschen

My Lords, we discussed the issue fully on Second Reading and there was a further discussion in another place. The measures provided for in the Bill allow the rescheduling of the debt. It is not yet decided how much of that debt will be rescheduled in the manner outlined on Second Reading.

On Question, Bill read a third time.

Viscount Goschen

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

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Viscount Goschen.)
