Arrangement of Business

Volume 726: debated on Friday 1 April 2011


My Lords, it is a convention that the House rises by about three o’clock on a Friday afternoon, and noble Lords might like to bear that in mind when making their contributions. However, as 32 speakers are signed up for today’s debate, it might be helpful for the House if I suggest that if Back-Bench contributions are kept to around seven minutes, the House should be able to rise at around 3 pm.
