Motion on Amendment 1
Motion on Amendments 2 to 10
My Lords, I take this opportunity to say that I think this House should be grateful to my honourable friend Mr Chope for what he has done to this Bill. Perhaps when time permits, we should contemplate our own procedure on private Bills to see why it is so difficult to achieve something like that in this House, which should be the contemplative and practical House. Pedlars have been very lucky to find a friend in Mr Chope but I think that our own procedures have not stood the test.
