Volume 687: debated on Thursday 30 November 2006

My Lords, perhaps I may intervene briefly at this point to say that the time limits for the next debate have changed. For noble Lords other than the noble Lord, Lord Alton of Liverpool, and my noble friend Lord Drayson, the time limit for speaking has changed to 12 minutes. It was originally 14 minutes, but a noble Lord’s name was omitted from the speakers list and has now been included. Again, the time for speeches is now 12 minutes.
