Lord Stanley of Alderley: My Lords, we have heard the case for giving the Bill a Second Reading. I shall not attempt to delay your Lordships any longer by trying to sum up your views or even to give Professor Broom's alleged statement a "going over". That would be unfair because the noble Lord would be unable to reply.

If your Lordships allow the Bill a Second Reading you will be accused, for better or worse, of putting yet another nail into the farmers' coffin. I commend the amendment to the House.

8.42 p.m.

On Question, Whether the said amendment shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 52; Not-Contents, 23.
