Arrangement of Business

Volume 739: debated on Monday 8 October 2012


My Lords, just before the Clerk calls the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, I remind your Lordships that we are entering on a timed debate and the clock is not working. This is something of a problem but, none the less, times will be given for the guidance of noble Lords. I think that the speakers’ list shows the times expected. The Clerk and I will make a note of the times when noble Lords begin to speak. I am not saying that we will gesticulate at noble Lords when their time is up but, should they wish to ask us how long they have been speaking, we will be very happy to oblige them.
