HL Deb 14 October 1997 vol 582 c399

Read a third time; an amendment (privilege) made; Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.

Lord Ashley of Stoke

My Lords, I should like to speak now because I have some comments to make on the Bill—

The Minister of State, Department of Health (Baroness Jay of Paddington)

My Lords, I must apologise for interrupting my noble friend but, as I understand it, an intervention at this stage of the proceedings is out of order because the Question has been put to the House.
