Orders of the Day

Pesticides (Fees and Enforcement) Bill

As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

Order for Third Reading read.--Queen's consent, and Prince of Wales's consent, signified.

10.11 pm

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Mr. Richard Ryder) : I beg to move, That the Bilbe now read the Third time.

The Bill is designed to make technical improvements to the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985. Above all, its changes will save taxpayers more than £500,000 a year.

I thank the Opposition, and in particular the hon. Members for Caerphilly (Mr. Davies) and for East Lothian (Mr. Home Robertson) for enabling the Bill to proceed smoothly with their full support Upstairs on Second Reading and in Committee. On the basis of that unanimity, I commend the Bill to the House.
