Lord Borrie: I am bound to express a certain disappointment with the Minister's response. While not, of course, anticipating the Queen's Speech, I had hoped that the noble Lord would have mentioned the projected water Bill that departments have in mind. I am sorry that the noble Lord did not even mention it. Nevertheless, I shall consult with my advisers and consider whether or not I wish to pursue the matter further on Report. In the meantime, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

quite frequently the case at this time for tributes to be paid to the staff of your Lordships' House. However, following discussions among the usual channels, if I may put it that way, it is felt that the appropriate time to pay such tributes would be at the end of the Session. So that is when we can look forward to that event. In so saying, I beg to move that the House do now adjourn for the Summer Recess.

On Question, Motion agreed to.

        House adjourned for the Summer Recess at twenty-four minutes past one o'clock until Monday 7th October next.
