Timing of Debates

Moved By

That the debate on the Motion in the name of Lord Forsyth of Drumlean set down for today shall be limited to five hours.

My Lords, I draw noble Lords’ attention to the fact that this debate is limited to five hours. We have 38 speakers to the debate of the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth. It means that Back-Bench speakers are restricted to seven minutes—and seven minutes means the moment that the digital clock shows seven.

Motion agreed.
