HL Deb 21 July 1997 vol 581 cc1196-7

Read a third time; an amendment (privilege) made.

Lord Haskel

My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Clinton-Davis, I beg to move that the Bill do now pass.

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Lord Haskel.)

Baroness Rawlings

My Lords, I welcome this Bill on behalf of my noble friend Lord Inglewood and the Opposition. As my noble friend said at Second Reading, we would have introduced the Bill had we won the general election. We wish it well.

Lord Mottistone

My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to be allowed to take part in the debate at this stage. This is a splendid Bill. We are grateful to the Government for accepting my amendment and others and for tabling one themselves. I hope that the Bill is well received in the other place.

Lord Haskel

My Lords, I thank noble Lords for their kind words. I thank all noble Lords who have participated in this Bill for their helpful contributions. It will lead to a more efficient use and better management of the radio spectrum.

On Question, Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.
