It has been a hectic week. I have been building up a list of things to blog about: the London bus syndrome may apply shortly. In the meantime, I thought readers may be interested in an exchange between Liberal Democrat peer Lord Thomas of Gresford and the minister, Lord Tunnicliffe, at the conclusion of the debate in the Moses Room on Tuesday on the Probate Services (Approved Bodies) Order 2009:
“Lord Thomas of Gresford: Does the Minister agree that “run-off procedures” is perhaps not an appropriate phrase?
Lord Tunnicliffe: I am sure that I meant something intelligent by that. I shall perhaps send a note with a better term. Or perhaps the noble Lord could use in his mind the phrase that I should have used.”
