Volume 695: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

My Lords, having happily debated the Serious Crime Bill as thoroughly as we were instructed, we should progress to the Question for Short Debate, but I see that, with the exception of the noble Baroness, Lady Morris of Bolton, the other participants are not yet in their place. In those unhappy circumstances, I must move a Motion to adjourn your Lordships’ House during pleasure for a period no longer than five minutes. I beg to move.

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

[The Sitting was suspended from 5.28 to 5.33 pm.]
