Lord Hardy of Wath

My Lords, I beg to move that the Bill do now pass. I do not wish to detain the House but I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to noble Lords on both sides of the House who have given the Bill their supportive consideration. I also thank my noble friend Lady Farrington of Ribbleton, who has been most helpful in her consideration of the Bill and the very good advice that she has given me. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.—(Lord Hardy of Wath.)

On Question, Bill passed, and returned to the Commons without amendment.
