I was one of the hon. Members who successfully reduced the number of days that the House sat last week, and I deeply regret that there is to be no change in the number of days that the House sits each year, bearing in mind that it sits for more days than any other Parliament in western Europe. On average, the House sits 170 days a year. Will my right hon. Friend give serious consideration at least to reducing some of the business that is brought before the House and thus reducing the number of days that we sit each year?
