Read 3a , an Amendment (privilege) made.

My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill do now pass and, if I may, I should like to express my appreciation of the interest which your Lordships have taken in this Bill and the contribution which you have made. I should like especially to thank the noble Lord, Lord Campbell of Croy, for his constructive help and his consideration to me as I guided the Bill through your Lordships' House, and for the very real interest evinced by the noble Lords, Lord Balerno and Lord Drumalbyn. Although the Bill is short it is, nevertheless, an important measure for education and the education profession in Scotland. I am confident that it has the support of your Lordships' House as we refer it to the other place.

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

My Lords, my noble friend Lord Campbell of Croy, who is absent due to a prior engagement, has asked me to thank the noble Lord, Lord Kirkhill, for his courtesy in writing in connection with a particular matter and to say that he is in entire agreement with the noble Lord on that matter.

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