My Lords, it is normally not proper to intervene at Third Reading, but the noble Lord, Lord Avebury, has called into question the absence of comment from these Benches. I have adopted the proper course at Third Reading, which is to say nothing because I could add nothing to four speeches I made on this issue. I feel it would be inappropriate to the House to extend the debate any longer.
