Grand Committee

Volume 705: debated on Wednesday 12 November 2008

Wednesday, 12 November 2008.

The Committee met at quarter to four.

[The Deputy Chairman of Committees (Baroness Pitkeathley) in the Chair.]

Perhaps I may remind the Committee that should there be a Division in the Chamber, we will adjourn for 10 minutes. Before the Minister moves that the first statutory instrument be considered, I remind noble Lords that in the case of each statutory instrument, the Motion before the Committee will be that the Committee do consider the statutory instrument in question. I should perhaps make it clear that the Motion to approve the statutory instrument will be moved in the Chamber in the usual way.
