[SYLVIA HEAL in the Chair]

The Financing Of Terrorism In Northern Ireland

[Relevant documents: Fourth Report from the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee, Session 2001–02, HC 978-I, and the Government's response thereto, Sixth Special Report, Session 2001–02, HC 1347.]

Motion made, and Question proposed, That the sitting be now adjourned.— [Derek Twigg.]

2.30 pm

I am happy to agree to this adjournment in the special circumstances that we are needed elsewhere. I shall raise a point of order in the Chamber after questions to try to ensure that we have a system that does not put us all in the position of having to adjourn a debate that could more easily be postponed until the important statement is over. In the circumstances, I am happy to agree with the Government's motion.

Question put and agreed to.

Adjourned accordingly at half-past Two o'clock.
