Arrangement of Business

Volume 744: debated on Wednesday 24 April 2013


My Lords, I am now in a position to make the formal announcement with regard to the arrangements for Prorogation. Now that the progress of business is certain, it may be for the convenience of the House if I indicate that I expect Royal Commissioners to attend this House late tomorrow afternoon to signify Royal Assent to several Bills and to prorogue Parliament until 8 May. The exact time of the ceremony will be settled tomorrow, once the flow of business in both Houses is clear.
