HL Deb 02 July 2004 vol 663 c461

Lord Davies of Oldham: My Lords, I apologise to the House but the Minister about to introduce the next orders is not present—ah, yes he is. If I look as if I am about to move the adjournment of the House and there is a slight hiccough in my throat, it is because I am happy to indicate that I should not be speaking at this moment.
