HL Deb 12 June 1997 vol 580 c977
The Lord Chancellor (Lord Irvine of Lairg)

My Lords, before the commencement of business, I take the opportunity to inform the House that I am to attend the University of Glasgow to receive an honorary Doctorate of Laws on Wednesday, 18th June 1997. Accordingly, I trust that the House will grant me leave of absence.

Noble Lords

Hear, hear!
