Arrangement of Business
Lord Strathclyde (Leader of the House of Lords, House of Lords; Conservative)
I will give way in a moment because I am generous and flexible on these sorts of matters. When we announced that we were going to have two whole days of the Queen's Speech devoted to discussing the future of this House, the noble Lord, Lord Bassam of Brighton-so it has been drawn to my attention-tweeted to say that it was a sign of skewed government priorities to give so much time to it. Today, he asks for more time. Over the next two weeks, out of six sitting days, we will be debating the future of the House of Lords over three whole days.
