I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

Might I bring to the notice of the House how much more agreeable is the hon. Gentleman on this subject than was his right hon. Friend on the matters we have just been considering?

I think that this Amendment is designed to meet a point which I raised when the Bill was in Committee of this House. I think it avoids the danger that the remedy of an injunction for nuisance might be excluded after the conclusion of the Festival.

Question put, and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to. [Several Special Entries.]
