Arrangement of Business

Volume 729: debated on Wednesday 20 July 2011

Announcement

My Lords, it is now 11.45. However, having discussed with both the opposition and the government Front Benches, it might be more convenient, in the likelihood of a Division, if we postpone the start of Grand Committee until 10 minutes after the Division has been called or in the event of it being called off. I suggest that we do not start for the time being, otherwise the noble Baroness, Lady Hughes, will be interrupted after about two minutes.

The Division has now been called. The Grand Committee will commence at 11.57.

Sitting suspended for a Division in the House.

My Lords, it is now 11.57 am. If there is a further Division in the Chamber while we are sitting, the Committee will adjourn as soon as the Division Bells are rung and will resume after 10 minutes.
