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

The noble Baroness said: My Lords, we have all spoken on this amendment on a number of occasions, and I do not intend to weary your Lordships by repeating it again, notwithstanding the grave temptation offered to me by the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth of Drumlean, from a sedentary position. I take this opportunity to thank all noble Lords who have contributed so wonderfully to these debates. If your Lordships will allow me, I particularly thank those noble Lords who have found physical movement sometimes a little more difficult than others. I mention in particular the noble Baroness, Lady Park, the noble and learned Lord, Lord Ackner, and my dear noble friend Lord Merlyn-Rees.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.

My Lords, I beg to move that the House do now adjourn during pleasure for half an hour, pending Royal Assent, until 7.30.

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

[The Sitting was suspended from 7 to 7.30 p.m.]
