asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether they will arrange for additional parliamentary time to be made available so that the United Kingdom may be able to ratify the Ottawa Treaty, banning anti-personnel landmines, before the end of the current Session. [HL2437]
As my noble friend will be aware, we hope to complete all stages of the Landmines Bill in another place on 10 July. It will then be debated in this House shortly afterwards. We do not yet have a date.
