My Lords, I rise to move that this Bill be now read a second time. It is a strict consolidation, bringing together in one Act legislation primarily concerned with the entry and movement of animals in circumstances which might result in the introduction or spread of animal diseases. There have previously been consolidations of such legislation in 1869 (with amendments), 1894 and 1950. If your Lordships give this Bill a Second Reading, it will be referred to the Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills in the usual way. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a .—( The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Bill read 2a , and referred to the Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills.
