My Lords, having happily debated the Serious Crime Bill as thoroughly as we were instructed, we should progress to the Question for Short Debate, but I see that, with the exception of the noble Baroness, Lady Morris of Bolton, the other participants are not yet in their place. In those unhappy circumstances, I must move a Motion to adjourn your Lordships' House during pleasure for a period no longer than five minutes. I beg to move.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

[The Sitting was suspended from 5.28 to 5.33 pm.]
