Volume 697: debated on Tuesday 18 December 2007

My Lords, with permission, we shall have a Statement repeated later today on the climate change negotiations in Bali, which we shall take after completion of the Second Reading of the Child Maintenance and Other Payments Bill. The Statement will be delivered, I hope, by my noble friend Lord Rooker, who is characteristically rushing back from a ministerial meeting to fulfil his commitment to this House. I hope that he gets back, particularly because I am not sure who will do it if he does not.
