Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 4 November 2008

My Lords, at a convenient point after 3.30 pm, my noble friend Lord Darzi of Denham will repeat a Statement on improving access to medicines for National Health Service patients.

In a moment, the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth of Drumlean, will ask a Private Notice Question. Before he does so, I thought that it might be helpful to remind the House of the guidance in the Companion on such Questions. Proceedings follow the rules for Oral Questions. In particular, supplementary questions should be short and confined to not more than two points. Proceedings are expected to take no longer than 10 minutes.
