Business of the House

Volume 718: debated on Thursday 11 March 2010

Timing of Debates

Tabled By

That the debate on the motion in the name of Lord Richard set down for today shall be limited to three hours and that in the name of Lord Morris of Handsworth to two hours.

My Lords, given that the first debate on the Order Paper today is a debate on a Select Committee report, it has been agreed that we will not time-limit the debates today. My noble friend the Leader of the House will not therefore move her own time-limiting Motion. However, we hope that Back-Bench speakers in the debate in the name of my noble friend Lord Richard will be able to keep their remarks to 10 minutes so that the House can get through all the business before it today. If necessary, we will issue an informal advisory time limit for the debate in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Morris of Handsworth. Today’s speakers list has been reissued without any time limits.

Motion not moved.
