Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Bill [HL]

Volume 783: debated on Wednesday 6 September 2017

Order of Commitment Discharged

Moved by

That the order of commitment of 11 July 2017 committing the bill to a Committee of the Whole House be discharged and that the bill be committed to a Grand Committee.

My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Howe, I beg to move the Motion standing in his name on the Order Paper. Following discussions in the usual channels in recent weeks, we have made time available on Tuesday 12 September for an additional debate on exiting the European Union, this time with particular focus on the position papers and future partnership papers that have been published by the Government over the summer. A speakers list is now open and will not close until 6 pm on Monday evening. The Motion before us today will simply allow us to move the previously advertised Chamber business for that day—the Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Bill—into the Moses Room.

Motion agreed.
