Business of the House

Volume 693: debated on Monday 2 July 2007

My Lords, we are about to move to a Statement with the Leader of the House. Following the Statement, we were scheduled on today’s Order Paper to consider Commons amendments to the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Bill. Discussions continue on these amendments, with the hope of finding an amendment that is acceptable to the whole House, so I hope that the House will understand that, having had discussions through the usual channels and with all the people who have shown an interest in the Bill, we propose to postpone consideration of Commons amendments until a date to be arranged. That means that we get a slightly earlier night, which I am always in favour of.
