Part of Sexual Offences Bill [Lords] – in a Public Bill Committee at 9:10 am on 9th September 2003.
I, too, welcome you to the Chair, Mr. Griffiths.
Tribute should also be paid to the constructive approach taken to the Bill in their lordship's House by both Government and Opposition Benches. I pay particular tribute to my noble Friend Baroness Noakes. The Bill was better when it left the House of Lords than when it started there. I join my hon. Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Grieve) in saying that we shall approach the Bill constructively.
Question put and agreed to.
