My Lords, at a convenient moment after 3.30 this afternoon my noble friend Lord Ferrers will, with the leave of the House, repeat in the form of a Statement an Answer to a Private Notice Question in another place on government policy on changes to the Official Secrets Act. This will be followed by my noble friend Lord Sanderson of Bowden who will, again with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement on school closures in Scotland.

It may be for the convenience of the House if I announce that the Committee stage of the Local Government Bill will be adjourned at approximately 7 p.m. for approximately one hour and that during this adjournment the Order of Commitment to the Arms Control and Disarmament (Privileges and Immunities) Bill will be discharged.
