Orders of the Day — 'Part 13A — Entities controlled etc by local authorities — 22 May 2007 at 21:48

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

I start by reassuring the House that the significant number of Government amendments that have just been passed came about not as a result of sloppy workmanship on our part, but because of the desirability of accommodating many points made on both sides in Committee. Secondly, I would like to thank Members for their contribution to the scrutiny and improvement of the Bill both in Committee and on the Floor of the House.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-

The House divided: Ayes 260, Noes 180.
