Arrangement of Business

Volume 815: debated on Friday 22 October 2021


My Lords, before we start on this important Private Member’s Bill, I point out that, if Members stick to the advisory speaking time—I am aware that it is advisory—we should conclude our business at about 5.30 pm. It is difficult to strike the right balance on speaking times: many Members wanted more and many wanted less, so I hope that all noble Lords can be equally unhappy with me. I therefore urge all noble Lords to do their best to speak within the advisory speaking time.
