To ask the Lord President of the Council what further plans he has to reform the procedure of the House; and if he will make a statement. [36497]

Subject to the satisfactory outcome of current consultations, I hope shortly to invite the House to approve a series of motions to incorporate the current Jopling experiment with revised hours of sittings into the Standing Orders of the House. These proposals represent significant reforms in our procedures which I believe enjoy the support of all sections of the House.
