Arrangement of Business

Volume 710: debated on Wednesday 29 April 2009


My Lords, as the House has had an opportunity to debate during Question Time the update on the swine flu outbreak, the usual channels have now agreed not to repeat the Statement in this House. I should advise noble Lords that, as a result of that, if Back-Bench contributions to today’s Second Reading debate are kept to no more than 10 minutes rather than the eight minutes I advised earlier, the House should rise not long after the target rising time of 10 pm.
