Lord Coleraine had given notice of his intention to move Amendment No. 20:

Page 1, line 12, at end insert--
("( ) Standing orders of the House shall provide that the excepted hereditary peers shall consist of the following categories--
(a)(i) 2 peers elected by Labour hereditary peers;
(ii) 42 peers elected by the Conservative hereditary peers;
(iii) 3 peers elected by the Liberal Democrat hereditary peers; and
(iv) 28 peers elected by the Cross-bench hereditary peers;
(b) 15 peers, elected by the whole House, from among those ready to serve as Deputy Speakers or in any other office as the House may require; and
(c) any peer holding the office of Earl Marshal or performing the office of Lord Great Chamberlain.")

The noble Lord said: My Lords, this is the last amendment tonight. Since I tabled it, I have been advised that in some respects it is defective. I propose to take it away, reconsider it and possibly bring it back at a later stage.

[Amendment No. 20 not moved.]

[Amendments Nos. 20A to 20D as manuscript amendments to Amendment No. 20 not moved.]

Lord Carter: My Lords, I beg to move that further consideration on Report be now adjourned.

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