Arrangement of Business

Volume 712: debated on Thursday 9 July 2009


My Lords, my right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer made a Statement in the other place yesterday on reforming financial markets. The usual channels agreed to the Statement being repeated immediately after Oral Questions today. My noble friend Lord Myners will now repeat this Statement.

With the leave of the House, at a convenient point around 6.30 pm, my noble friend Lord West of Spithead will repeat as a Statement an urgent Question, which was allowed in the other place, asking the Secretary of State for the Home Department to make a Statement on the steps that he is taking to look into the actions of the police, the prosecutors and the Information Commissioner in respect of the use by newspapers of illegal surveillance methods.
