My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a second time.
I thank all noble Lords for a fascinating debate. It is my belief that all views should be aired thoroughly. It needs to be a robust debate, so I welcome the views of those who have opposed the Bills as well as those who have supported them. I particularly wanted to add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Stratford, on his maiden speech. I have much admired his tenacity of purpose, and I am just glad that he is on my side rather than on the other side with regard to the London Bill. I commend the Bill to the House.
Moved, That the Bill be now read a second time.—(Baroness Howarth of Breckland.)
On Question, Bill read a second time and committed to a Select Committee.
