Volume 704: debated on Tuesday 14 October 2008

My Lords, my noble friend Lord West of Spithead will now repeat the Statement on the Counter-Terrorism Bill made by the Home Secretary in the Commons last night. I should also advise the House that we are likely to sit late tonight in order to make necessary progress on the Committee stage of the Planning Bill. As ever, I am sure that I record the wishes of the House in expressing especial gratitude for the forbearance of all staff of the House who will be affected tonight.
