My Lords, I am extremely grateful to the noble and learned Lord. Had I realised that I would be surrounded by such warmth, I might have tabled a Question for the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, who, to mark a special occasion, could then have answered it.

Moved, That Standing Order 40 (Arrangement of the Order Paper) be dispensed with today to allow the Motion standing in the name of the Lord Kingsland to be taken before the Report stage of the British Overseas Territories Bill [HL].--(Lord Williams of Mostyn.)
