rose to move Motion C, That the House do not insist on its Amendment No. 33D, but do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 33C, 33G, 33I and 33J in lieu thereof.

The noble Baroness said: My Lords, I pray in aid the reasons already expounded in relation to this amendment by my noble and learned friend the Lord Chancellor. I also invite noble Lords to note that a very serious statement was made during the first debate. That was that the Liberal Democrats would be willing to veto the Bill. We now ask—

My Lords, I must make it clear to the noble Baroness that this is not our amendment. We said that as long as the noble Lord, Lord Kingsland, chooses to move his amendment, we will support it, even if he intends, as the ultimate weapon, to block the Bill.

My Lords, the House heard what was said. I now ask Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition whether they share the view that was expressed and whether they, too, will veto this Bill.

Moved, That the House do not insist on its Amendment No. 33D, but do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 33C, 33G, 33I and 33J in lieu thereof.—(Baroness Scotland of Asthal.)

My Lords, it is our earnest wish that this Bill finds its way on to the statute book.

My Lords, the Question is that Motion C be agreed to.

The noble Lord said: My Lords, I have spoken to this amendment, and I beg to move.

Moved, as an amendment to Motion C, leave out from "House" to end and insert "do insist on its Amendment No. 33D and do disagree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 33C, 33G. 33I and 33J in lieu thereof".—(Lord Kingsland.)

My Lords, I think that I should give the House notice of my intentions. I and many other Back-Benchers have laboured long and hard and have listened to great arguments from the Front Benches and Members of the Back Benches. I think that it has been made clear what the feelings of this House are. I very much hope that the Front Benches here and in another place will be able to resolve their differences. But if we find ourselves at tea time sending back substantial disagreements again to another place, I shall after the votes move for the Adjournment of the House.

12.56 p.m.

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. C1) shall he agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 194; Not-Contents, 123.

Resolved in the affirmative, and amendment agreed to accordingly.

On Question, Motion, as amended, agreed to.

1.10 p.m.

My Lords, if it is helpful, as I believe it has been, to give indications of time, I shall do so. As the House knows, we will once again send the Bill back to the representatives of the British people to hear their judgment on our deliberations. That will take around five hours, so the House will resume not earlier than six o'clock. I beg to move that the House do now adjourn during pleasure.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

[The Sitting was suspended from 1.11 to 6.30 p.m.]

A message was brought from the Commons, That they insist on certain of their amendments to a Lords amendment to the Prevention of Terrorism Bill; they insist on their disagreement to certain other Lords amendments and insist on their amendments in lieu thereof; they insist on their disagreement to Lords amendments proposed in lieu of a Lords amendment; they insist on their amendments to words so restored to the Bill by their insistence to a disagreement to a certain Lords amendment; they disagree with the Lords amendments in lieu for which they assign a reason; they insist on their disagreement with certain Lords amendments and insist on certain of their amendments in lieu; and they do not insist on an amendment in lieu to which the Lords have disagreed but do propose an amendment in lieu thereof.

My Lords, I beg to move that the Commons reasons and amendments be considered forthwith.

Moved, That the Commons reasons and amendments be considered forthwith.—(Lord Falconer of Thoroton.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
